Tips for using the different water colour whites
However, many artists use Chinese White at the end of their painting for highlights or to dull some colour mixtures during painting. Introduced by Winsor & Newton in 1834, Chinese White is the most popular white in water colour. It is semi-opaque and has a blue undertone. Titanium White (Opaque White) is the whitest, most opaque white. It has a high tinting strength and a high covering power.
