PY41. Very Fast Drying. Opaque. Excellent Lightfastness. Very Low Oil Content. TOXIC.

Lead Antinomiate, in natural versions, seems to have been used as a pigment since the 5th century B.C, and has been manufactured since the1400’s, being one of the most relied-upon colours, and in constant demand. Michael harding still produce the genuine article, as opposed to the unsatisfactory blends which have been offered as substitutes. Its vivid, dense, almost primrose yellow cannot be mimicked, as portraitists and figure painters will attest. It is more powerful and yet more muted than its equivalents among the Cadmium range. Its handling characteristics are incomparable. Because it tends to react with steel rollers, to this day it is still ground with stone.
