Stormont

The Stormont pattern was introduced in the late eigteenth century, most probably in France. It is basically a Turkish Spot pattern where the last color has a small amount of turpentine added to the paint. This results in a spot with many fine holes and a lacy appearance. It was a popular pattern, with many variations as illustrated here. It is one of the most difficult patterns to master because of the volatile and strongly dispersant nature of turpentine. The paints must be constantly monitored and adjusted which makes achieveing consistency of spots difficult. Examples of the use of Stormont can also be found on other sample pages, where it is used for background effect.
