    22/05/2014 Using De Mairo lapis lazuli pigment was amazing! It is easy and so much better than any other pre-done paint. I use the pigment in two paintings.

    29/03/2013I love working with this beautiful fine grain blue pigment. Iconography is such a sacred art and all the time one is praying and reflecting on heaven and the subject being painted. This is all the more so when using De Mairo Lapis Lazuli. The great Renaissance masters kept this beautiful rich blue pigment for robs of Our Lord Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. When I work on an Icon I feel I must offer to God the very best of His gifts to us, and for me the De Mairo Lapis Lazuli is the best and finest quality. Iconographer ( ireland )

    I find both of the De Mairo gemstone pigments I have used add a degree of luminosity and glow to the artwork. In the porcelain painting, I have added De Mairo Lapis Lazuli to Paynes Gray for the background and shadow areas. The Florida Sunset was painted using De Mairo Jasper in the sky and reflections in the water along with Lapis Lazuli pigment in the water. I am looking forward to trying your new colors as they come out.
