We’ve created Mica Lead White Oil Paint for artists without stabilizers (i.e., stearates, waxes, etc.) or fillers characteristic of modern whites. Wet ground mica provides a crisp body to the lead white and has a lower refractive index than lead white, making it more transparent and well-suited for mixing with other colors. Use it to make pale tints of colors without overpowering them and where crisp brushstrokes that do not slump and level out are needed.
All types of Lead Whites and their characteristics are examined in our article “Six Lead White Artist Oils to Choose.”

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.
All images of color swatches on this website are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have carefully matched the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, your results may vary because of the wide variance in color monitors.
Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.
Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mils (0.006 inches) thickness applied to a standard test card to examine color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color's full strength (mass tone) on the left and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
