Traditionally and unethically made from force feeding cows mango leaves, and then gently warming the urine to create the pigment!
Fortunately for you, me and the cows this is now made from Diarylide Yellow. The modern organic equivalent matches the beauty of the colour used for centuries in Mughal miniatures, but now has greater tint power and reliability.
This is such a beautiful colour, such a rich orange, tinting to such warm yellows, if only I had a room with the walls painted with this which I could visit on a rainy Thursday afternoon in February,
Being transparent it glazes very well, presenting a uniquely vibrant warm mustard yellow, warming and harnessing the light.
Average Drying. Transparent. Very Good Lightfastness. High Oil Content.
This a bright, lovely, transparent yellow. Love it! Very fast shipping in secure box.
I’ve always found Indian Yellow to be one of my favourite colours. This is by far hands down the best I’ve come across. Such a beautiful colour, no photo can ever really do it any justice. A wonderfully warm transparent pigment, fantastic for glazing. My pallet won’t be without it from now on.
