    Historical transparent and very granulating cobalt and glass based blue.

    Its pigment is produced according to the historical process attributed to the Bohemian glassmaker Christoph Schürer who in the mid-500s colored the glass blue by mixing cobalt salts to the glassy mixture. The glass then was pulverized and used as pigment by many masters of classical painting. 'Smaltino' is the first artistic pigment based on cobalt in history.
