One of the great advantages of handmade paint is its tendency to be longer than tube paint and brushable, yet adjustable to hold texture when you want it. But Blockx has a very appealing silky feel, sensual to move, that probably comes from the poppy oil. – I have the dry pigment from Earth Pigments and have found it useful. I had expected  that Vasari would be clearly superior to my own paint, but in some ways, for my purposes (emphasis on that), I didn’t find it so. Expect paint that glows from across the room, fiery, gemlike color emitting its own light, to set your work apart from all the others, each and every time. I have since bought the pigment from Kremer, which holds up very well against Vasari’s;  Ercolano Red from Natural Pigments, my warmest earth red, is a similar color. Its accidental discovery by a Berlin color maker, Diesbach, was a closely guarded secret for the next two decades until the formulation was published, in 1724. There is one way that homemade paint is really superior, even to Vasari. References to Spanish art and culture are […], The Secret is the Paint The paint itself, not an obscure medium or oil, is the true secret of the Old Masters. Vasari’s Havane is close enough to their raw sienna that it could be made from that with a touch of red earth; I’m not sure it’s worth having both. It makes nice greenish grays in tints.

Honestly I would save all the mulling work and add a touch of viridian. (I have a limited number of tubes, so I don’t know if these observations hold through the complete lines.). Vasari is often described as the Cadillac of oil paints. I follow Sinopia’s advice that  you should mull if you plan to tube, but otherwise can just mix. I don’t think it has the character of more unusual raw siennas, but it’s very nice. Update:  I’ve been doing some texture face-offs between different brands including Vasari and Blockx. It would take half of my painting session to mull several colors and clean up. There are other loose, melting paints like Sennelier that are good quality and might have similar results. Your Flake White is simply the best on the market (I’ve tried them all), and what a difference it makes. These three are on they looser end of the scale, allowing them to be used without solvents or mediums if desired, but they are not runny (like Sennelier in some tubes I have). Where mulling matters for color intensity, Vasari definitely wins, but the color difference is pretty subtle and often lost in mixes, and I could always break out the muller and get close.
