The formulation of each color is modified individually to compensate for the inherent differences in the working characteristics of pigments. The result is an even consistency across the entire palette of colors.
Color Swatch created using heavy application/medium application/50% tint and was applied on acrylic primed canvas (7 oz) material.
Strontium titanate, an oxide of strontium and titanium, is not really a pigment. It is transparent and nearly colorless, and thus can easily be doped with colorants.
Strontium titanate is inert and stable. Because of its clarity in pure form, it has been used for manufacturing imitation diamonds.
Strontium titanate is not toxic.
It was once believed that strontium titanate does not occur in nature. It was synthesized before natural deposits were discovered. It occurs naturally as the mineral tausonite.
