Phasing out Zinc White?

“I read a report from a manufacturer about using zinc white causing problems in oil paintings, and they are phasing out the usage of it. Any thoughts about it?”


Indeed we have after much consideration decided to err on the side of caution and cease making it. It has also been removed from our mixed colours such as brilliant pink. For more information please feel free to contact us.

If you are phasing out zinc white what alternative can you recommend that will give the transparency of zinc?

Although not as transparent Cremnitz White is a good alternative – It did once contain Zinc but this has been phased out.
