An obviously beautiful mid blue. The discovery in the 1820’s of a Sodium Sulphosilicate compound, which had appeared as a mysterious blue deposit on soda-ash furnaces, was a liberating moment for financially challenged artists everywhere. Up to then the only available version of this compound was the often unobtainable Lapis Lazuli ore, mined in Afghanistan. Ultramarine has a high Tint Power, our chosen shade produces strong green shade blue hues, and makes wonderful violets with Magenta and the red Lake colours. It is useful in greens and greys. The only chemical weakness is a recorded sensitivity to atmospherically borne acids, which can bleach it out. One of the more difficult paints to make, as it forms an intractable runny syrup when first ground into oil, which has to be stabilized with a small amount of wax.

Paper is a fragile product, and our goal is to ensure it arrives to you safely. Extra packing will be used to ship it safely and although we do not charge for this, there may be an increase in logistics charges. We recommend that you consider purchasing a minimum of 5 sheets or pack quantities to both save on purchase price and shipping charges.

We aim to make the shipping charge as cost effective as possible and to ensure you receive your art supplies in good condition. Please review our complete Shipping Policy information from the link in the footer for more details.
