Ultramarine Blue Artist Acrylic Paint

$9.00
Size
Color

Ultramarine Blue is the bridge between the Renaissance painters we worship and the modern artists we envy. It's a true blue, distinguished by its violet undertones.

This blue pigment is your gateway to wild seas and clear skies. Regarding landscapes and seascapes, Ultramarine Blue is your secret weapon. Its cool tone is flawless for capturing vastness and distance. Yet don't let the name fool you. This blue is pivotal for figurative work as well. Think of that dude, Johannes Vermeer, with that babe who wears a pearl earring and blue head scarf.

Compared to Cobalt Blue(coming soon), Ultramarine Blue has a slightly warmer and purplish hue, while Cobalt Blue leans towards a cooler and greener blue. Phthalo Blue, on the other hand, offers a vibrant and intense blue but with a more greenish undertone compared to the more relaxed appearance of Ultramarine Blue.

It's made of some fancy stuff called complex sodium aluminum sulfosilicate, but what really matters is how it performs. Ultramarine Blue is a gem regarding lightfastness, meaning it won't fade away with time. It's like the rock-solid foundation of your artwork with its semi-opaque opacity, giving you that solid color you're aiming for.

All Gaffrey acrylic colors are crafted in small batches with a hint of artistic mischief and paint chemistry expertise. Our colors undergo daily testing by our seasoned team of self-taught art pros.

Love your heavy Acrylics

This was my second order from Gaffrey and I was very pleased. I really love the heavy acrylic paints, the most. I’m still experimenting with them and find I am having a great time “molding” them. There will be a third order, in the future.

Disappointed

After using the reds and magentas I've purchased from Gaffrey, I was shocked by how underwhelming the ultramarine is. Especially when I compare it side by side with liquitex basic acrylic Ultramarine. This tube of gaffrey Ultramarine seems a little less viscous than the other gaffrey acrylics I've tried so maybe it's a bad tube. I also tried mixing it with a little titanium white and it's still fairly transparent. Makes me sad.
