The denim-blue mass tone of Michael Harding's Blue Verditer comes from the mixing of two Cobalt compounds with the semi-opaque Zinc Oxide. The original Blue Verditer was a synthesised version of Azurite, based on Copper Carbonate- however, this was unstable in air, and over time exposed to air would turn from blue to grey, black or green. This formula maintains the colour of the original, without the downsides of oxidisation.
