For the first time in Maimeri's color-making history, all of the colors have names in the English language only, reflecting a modern, hi-tech take on color intended to entice younger artists to experiment with oil paint. Olio HD can be expected to dry under normal conditions in 24 to 48 hours.
Color Swatch created using heavy application/medium application/50% tint and was applied on acrylic primed canvas (7 oz) material.
An off-white pigment with complex reflective effects, mica is often used with transparent pigments to create mixed pigments with interference and pearlescent effects.
Mica is permanent and lightfast.
Although it is completely non-toxic and not bioreactive, fine particles may be irritating. This is of concern primarily for those exposed occupationally to dry mica powder. Breathing mica particles may cause lung fibrosis and pneumoconiosis.
Mica has been used as a pigment since prehistoric times.
