Titanium White No. 1 is the most brilliant white in my range, suitable for cool, opaque light hues. This white is ground with safflower oil and contains a small addition of Zinc White in order to avert the tendency of pure Titanium Dioxide pigment to exude oil to the surface whilst drying, which then causes a more pronounced appearance of yellowing. Zinc White incorporates this free oil more effectively, as well as adding a cooler brightness to the white. If you want a strong mixer which tends to lighten hues strongly then this is it. The handling qualities are not overly subtle, but this is the white most suitable for a bright and largely cool palette. It forms a strong film when cured.
