Chrome Yellow Primrose - 50ml


A really beautiful yellow, primrose is very apt. This is the gentlest and lightest of the Chrome yellows it leans slightly towards green which gives it those ephermal primrose yellows, particularly visible when made into tints with white. The lead base gives it a gentle luminosity.

Chrome yellow primrose has good hiding power and average tinting strength.

Chrome was discovered by the French chemist Nicolas Louis Vauquelin in late 1790 in the mineral crocoite (lead sulfochromate). Vauquelin studied the different chrome compounds and found he could obtain a wide range of colours from greenish-yellow to orange shades. A synthetic lead chromate (mainly chrome yellows) manufacturing process was published in 1809, although they were not mass produced until 1820 when the first large chrome deposits were discovered in North America.

Chrome yellow Primrose

A beautiful subtle luminosity which I will use for many years to come.

Enion Salt.
A joy to use.

These Chrome yellows are all wonderful to use & preferable to the Cadmium yellows. Chrome yellow primrose is a much better alternative to Cadmium yellow lemon being brighter with a luminous quality that becomes very obvious in low light conditions. The coverage & tinting power puts these amazing paints in a class of their own & much better value for money as there's 20% more than the closest rivals. All Rublev paints are a joy to use so a big thanks to Natural Pigments & Supreme.
