The product of a dream and of outstanding technical achievement, Maimeri Puro Superior Oil Colors are the most advanced and yet the most traditional of oil colors. Restoring the outstanding simplicity and quality of original oil colors to paint formulas: that was the dream of painter and paint manufacturer Gianni Maimeri, although his dream did not become a reality until three generations down the line.
Striving for simplicity and purity, putting years of technical experience to work, Maimeri’s company came up with the formulas for the 80 colors in this range one by one. Using the best, non-yellowing safflower and poppy seed oils, along with stable pigments which require no additives to produce a perfect impasto, Puro offers a top quality balance between binder and pigment. Squeeze a tube of Maimeri Puro, and you’re squeezing the very idea of oil colors.
