Maimeri Renaissance Oils are formulated to replicate important colors used by Masters such as Michelangelo, Bellini, and Caravaggio during the Italian Renaissance (circa 1330–1595), one of the most important periods of development in art history.
Each of the 11 colors in the Renaissance range has been individually prepared to exhibit the same visual characteristics and "feel" under the brush or knife as paints made in accordance with traditional recipes from the period, although unstable or toxic pigments have been replaced with superior modern alternatives.
In keeping with tradition, Maimeri Renaissance Oil Colors are ground in cold-pressed walnut oil to minimize yellowing and provide excellent film strength. They are particularly suited to be used in combination with Maimeri Italian Natural Earth Oil Colors, as the palettes in each range complement the other perfectly.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

A chalky, thick, not oily, alternative to zinc white
Comments about Maimeri Renaissance Oil Colors:
This is different from the Maimeri paints I am used to. It is not oily at all; rather, it reminds me of Old Holland paints in consistency. It is a little grittier and transparent. It is not as clean a white as Titanium or zinc whites. I tried it heavily mixed with eco-house medium and discovered it lost all substance. That is not necessarily a negative. I think I will try it as an impasto straight up next time, or keep it mixed with other more oily colors to thicken them up. This is an exciting new option in white.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fun Historical Paints
By Rachel O
from Omaha, Nebraska
I purchased Bistre, Mummy and Ceruse. I wanted to paint some vanitas images and it sounded fun to use historical paints.Bistre is by far the best neutral black I have ever used. I'm not a fan of how most black paint is really dark blue. Bistre is a true neutral and a joy to work with.Mummy is a good brown, no problems there.Ceruse is a great off white, but a little thin for my taste. I'm used to a really opaque white. The color is so good that I'm going to practice with it a while. I'm sure it will be worth the effort.

Some Unique Colours
from Toronto, ON
Bought a couple of these from DB to try. The Michelangelo Blue is a beautiful colour when compared with eight other blues from other brands. Completely unique. The Paris Red seems to match the Pyrrolo Vermilion from other brands. Vasari Yellow also unique
