Restauro varnish colours
A unique palette for the art of saving art. Reliability is required for the reproducibility and brilliance of every tone, from the colours of medieval and Renaissance paintings to those of contemporary art. They have been created to endure unaltered but at the same time are always suited to being removed. This line of colours requires raw materials of extraordinary quality and purity. Maimeri is the sole remaining international producer of mastic resin based restoration paints. In preparing these colours the company still uses the original formulation, time-tested for more than fifty years of use on paintings in museums all over the world.

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
