White is…
Ceramic White
It is the white made by using a new material ceramic. The color is very stable; moreover, it is excellent in white shade (white), staining power (power that makes it white), obliterating power (power that hides the color below), and vividness or clearness of mixing colors (vividness or clearness in mixing white). This is the ideal light-resistant white without yellow degeneration (yellow on an application surface) or limitation of mixing colors.
Pigment… titanic acid strontium
Medium… poppy oil
Silver White
It is the first-made white among 6 kinds of that color. The surface applied with silver white is very stable, and the color painted over the surface is also fixed well without any cracks when you use it on a sketch. However, attention must be payed when you handle it because the poisonous white lead is used as pigment. Also, generally please avoid mixing it with the sulfur colors such as ultramarine. It is called limitation of mixing colors that acts as means to prevent the formation of xanthation lead (the black) from lead and sulfur. The expression of limitation of mixing colors is displayed on each color tube supplied by any companies.

Medium… poppy oil
Zinc White
It is the white made by using zinc white as pigment without toxicity. Also the white has no limitation or restriction in mixing colors, transparency is high, and it yields excellent pastel colors when you mix it with colors. Occasionally, the color painted over the Zinc white-applied surface exhibits cracking or peeling, therefore, it is not adequate to use the white for foundation painting or sketch. It is better to use the white for only finishing.

There is no restriction or limitation in mixing colors, and also painted film is firm. It is possible to use it at any stages of drawing from under-coating to finishing.

Quick Drying White
It is the white that shorten drying time. It dries to the inside quickly, thus you can paint a picture with lumping and make various kinds of textures freely. It does not cause even yellowing after drying. In the case of a thin layered painting, touch by finger is possible at 4 to 6 hours after painting, and you can commence to produce a picture the next day.
