Titanium White is a brilliant, opaque white. It also has superior tinting strength, which means that it takes just little Titanium White to make a shift in color value when mixed with other paints. Due to its opaque nature, it will mask any translucent qualities a paint will have, so if you want to maintain the transparent nature, you will want to use Zinc White instead. While Titanium White is an excellent choice for custom color mixes, it is also perfect for direct painting. Its excellent covering power makes it an extremely useful choice for the encaustic palette and be sure to extend with wax medium to get more mileage and flow with your paint. Titanium White is such a popular paint that we have included it in most all of our sets.
