Lead white has been made since antiquity using variations of the process known as the stack process or Old Dutch method, which creates lead carbonate on coils of lead.
The Italian Artshop Stack lead White is made in the traditional way, using coils of lead suspended over vinegar and buried under horse manure.
It is a stringy and thixotropic paint that the Old Masters prized for its opacity. It is a warm white that creates a light in your painting like no other white.
A high degree of opacity and amazing brush qualities make this paint an absolute pleasure to paint with.
Our Stack Lead white is made entirely by hand and the process takes months to produce just a single tube of this marvellous product
The stack process is the only way to produce the flake white used by the Old Masters, a white that is a joy to paint with when you try it.
