Forbidden by purists, Chinese White is much more than a repair patch. This semi-opaque pure white offers excellent permanency and a medium-high tinting strength. It’s great for lightening other colors.
Drop and spatter Chinese White into a damp gray wash to describe the moist, mushy snowfalls of the Pacific Northwest’s coastal lowlands. I also employ a brushload of Chinese White where water’s edge meets snowbanks to indicate melting. For field flowers in spring meadows, a touch of Chinese White into Carbazole Violet helps create clover and other wildflowers. And, of course, you can always use it to paint details and highlights! If the paint works, use it.
