YUNGVERMEER:

Today I had the pleasure of making genuine ultramarine blue oil paint. The pigment, powdered lapis lazuli, creates one of the most sought after blue paints in all of art history. It is a paint that Vermeer used extensively.

While I’m not going to share the paint (it’s expensive!), I will share these nearly pornographic photos of the paint-making process.

Enjoy!
