Color chemists at Holbein have been working for years to improve the traditional oil paint medium with modern technology, and the result is Holbein’s line of Vernet oil paints, featuring incomparable concentration, beauty, and stability. Vernet oil paints use only single pigments for greater vibrancy and cleaner mixes, and are ground 50% more finely than traditional oil paints. The super-fine pigment particles distribute more evenly, which allows for a higher quality luster and greater color coverage. As a result, a 20ml tube of Vernet provides as much coverage and brilliance as a larger tube of regular oil paint. It takes ten times longer to produce a tube of Vernet as it does other oils, and this increased effort will be apparent in the finished product.
This premium set contains 12 colors in 20 ml tubes:
Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Bismuth Yellow, Terre Verte, Phthalocyanine Green, Cobalt Blue, Prussian Blue, Quinacridone Magenta, Burnt Sienna, and Titanium White
