Encaustic Slide

Zinc White

Zinc White is cooler than Titanium and has less of a tendency to yellow in oil (the reason why it is often combined with Titanium White). It is only semi-opaque, which makes it a great scumbling white over a darker color. Excellent for mixing, it gives very clean tints.
