Oil and pure pigment, nothing else.
The product of a dream and of outstanding technical achievement, Maimeri Puro superior oil colours are the most advanced and yet the most traditional of oil colours. Restoring the outstanding simplicity and quality of original oil colours to paint formulas: that was the dream of painter and paint manufacturer Gianni Maimeri, though his dream which did not take on concrete form as paste in a tube until three generations down the line.
Maimeri Puro Superior Oil colours are the result of many years' research, and are produced using the most sophisticated methods available, yet keeping within traditional techniques. Based on a model of purity and simplicity, this range of professional colours are crafted with the highest quality pigments that are valued for their purity of hue, and are formulated as concentrated as possible, creating a spectrum of beautifully bright, intense colours. Puro colours contain no inert extenders that could alter colour tone, and each colour has been individually formulated giving each shade a unique clarity and brightness. Safflower oil and poppy oil is used to carry the pigment, which prevents yellowing and keeps the colour soft while the paint is being worked with. All 80 colours have maximum lightfastness, 63 of which are pure single-pigment formulas. The smooth, creamy consistency of Puro makes it suitable for application by both brush and painting knife, and requires to additives to produce a perfect impasto.
