Azurite Hue 5oz Tube, GOLDEN Historical Heavy Body Acrylic
Golden Historical Acrylic - Azurite Hue
An inexpensive greenish blue, Azurite was the most important pigment in European painting during the Middle Ages and Renaissance until Prussian Blue replaced it in the 18th century. A natural mineral found in many parts of the world in the upper oxidized portions of copper ore deposits; it is often compared to the green pigment Malachite because of its chemical composition. Weaker and less intense than many of the blues we have today, this blend of Phthalo Blue Red Shade, Zinc White and a touch of Raw Umber is also let down with gel to create an interesting color mixture. It creates an earth color blue that doesn't overpower other colors.
