Curt Walter 30 Dec 2017

For many artists, the act of blending paint is based on intuition and feeling. Visual and performance artist Curt Walter has developed it into a science. Since 1976, he has been exploring the world of painting – from the old masters to contemporary creations. He has created innumerable works based on the techniques of TIZIAN, including glazes and mixing pigments with linseed oil and larch resin.

Using a highly precise METTLER TOLEDO ML204T balance to weigh and blend pigments has helped Walter achieve subtly differentiated shades that add depth and meaning to his works. What’s more, it has allowed him to recreate these shades and establish his own signature color index, which he calls his Cosmos of Color.

Curt Walter’s process involves taking 20 grams of a single pigment and weighing another one into it in three-gram intervals. The ML204T’s high-performance weighing cell gives Walter confidence in his results. User guidance displayed on the balance touchscreen lets Walter operate the balance easily, even though he is not a trained lab technician. “By and by, I get a different color,” he says. “I create works of art no other artist can.”

The ML204T provides the accuracy Walter needs through its ability to handle minimum weights of 160 mg in accordance with strict United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards. This makes it an excellent choice for applications such as Walter’s where small sample weights and pristine accuracy are required. Walter also knows that if the balance is ever off-level, he will be warned and given instructions to set it right before his colors can go wrong.

Primarily used in his monochromatic paintings, Walter’s method of color production has not only enhanced his painting but also enlivened his multimedia works and sculpture. Additionally, it has helped him avoid an issue that has long plagued fine artists: “The more an artist mixes, the more the paint begins to look the same,” he says. Weighing keeps Walter on course.
