Maya blue, invented by the Mayans! Made now by Wallace Seymour!
The Mayans developed new and interesting ways with the Indigo pigment, for example applying different levels of heat to it to create a wide variety of colours and attaching it at a microscopic level to clay particles to stabilize it.
Maya blue in masstone is very dark blue, once white is added to tint it, it makes a wide range of mid blues, to my eye it is like Indigo but a little more neutral in hue and temperature.
Super smooth in consistency, milled in single estate cold pressed linseed oil. Produced by hand using traditional techniques and sustainable methods.
Nothing to do with paint but the picture opposite is an amazing bit of Mayan stone carving!
