Michael Harding Stack Lead White 250ml
Michael Harding Stack Lead White is humbly hand made by using the Old Dutch Stack method of suspending lead strips over vinegar and burying under horse dung! The method produces a white lead like no other in terms of handling and provides the “stringiness” the Old Masters preferred. This warm white is very opaque, has outstanding brushing qualities and mixes well with every colour on the artist’s palette. Its strong covering power made it a favourite of the Old Masters. Scientific testing confirms the method Michael Harding uses is in keeping with the original formulation and process of the Old Masters. Michael carefully nurtures each tube of paint for approximately 6 months. He is the only paint manufacturer to create both the pigment and Stack Lead White oil paint in the world.
Colour & Characteristics: Colour index Pw 1, extremely fast drying, very low oil content, lead carbonate, toxic.
