Indian Yellow - 40ml


Traditionally and very unethically this was 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 the pigment diarylide yellow.

This modern organic equivalent matches the beauty of the traditional colour which has been used for centuries in Mughal miniatures, but now has greater tint power and reliability (and less cow suffering).

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.

The best I’ve used

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.
