Manufactured according to the original formulas, the Artisti line includes authentic, hard to find colors like Prussian Blue and Bitumen. With the exception of the whites, which are ground in safflower oil, all Artisti Oils are prepared using top-quality, cold pressed linseed oil.
Color Swatches created using heavy application/medium application/50% tint and were applied on acrylic primed canvas (7 oz) material.
Asphaltum is a transparent black pigment with low tinting strength. It is often used as a glazing black.
In high concentrations it interferes with drying and bleeds into other colors. It is prone to decomposition when exposed to sunlight.
Asphaltum is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.
Asphaltum is a natural hydrocarbon mineral. Although it is found in mineral deposits, it is more often produced synthetically as a residue from petroleum processing or as a distillate from coal gases. Naturally occurring deposits of asphaltum have been used since prehistoric times for waterproofing. It has been used as a pigment since at least the 16th century, and probably much earlier.
