Hi All! I'm looking for LeFranc extra fine Titanium white oil paint. It seems to be discontinued. Does anyone have a way to find it? If not, is there a white paint brand that is similar in application? Many thanks!!!

I think they are getting hard to find here in the US, even by mail order.
Since they are safflower oil formulations, I might go with the Blick Artist Oils, which I just purchased about six tubes of, and they are lovely.

here's one retailer:

if you are building a Richard Schmid palette, it's - or was! - not pure titanium but a mix with zinc. read on L&B's site or contact them to hear the new equivalent to their old titanium white. they have something called "titanium" and "titanium zinc". paints called "titanium zinc" are usually very soft, transparent mixing aids and not comparable to the famed titanium white we're talking about here. hey and come back to inform us! this switch to the new line is ahead for me too, soon.
