Zinc White is considered to be a slightly warmer white than Titanium White, and works well with the ivory tone of most watercolour papers. Zinc’s semi-transparent nature makes it great for tinting, and it is able to create beautiful glazes when mixed with other transparent watercolours.

Artist Notes: Zinc White is the most transparent of the white pigments making it incredibly valuable when used for glazing or in mixes with other transparent colours. Zinc White can be used to cool and dull other colours.

Paint Maker’s Notes: Zinc White was first used by artists in the early 19th century as replacement for the toxic Lead White pigment artists had used since antiquity.
