India Yellow Artist Acrylic Paint
India Yellow brings a radiant glow to the table with earthiness and translucent deep yellow hues. It boasts slight brownish-orange undertones, allowing a touch of depth and coziness. We love it for its inimitable richness.
That warm and rich golden color is perfect for those mesmerizing warm, glowing light effects. India Yellow plays well with other warm colors, creating harmonious and inviting color schemes. It's like a warm embrace for your artwork, bringing that magic touch and inviting everyone in.
India Yellow is compared to Diarylide Yellow, with a few notable differences. The particle size of our India yellow mixture has finer particles, giving it more translucence and lending to a golden hue. In contrast, Diarylide has a distinct orangish hue, with a hair more opacity. It's like comparing a cozy campfire to a bonfire. Each has its own unique charm.
The pigment's origin is steeped in lore from the early 1800s. Allegedly, urine was collected from dehydrated oxen fed only mango leaves. Our version is vegan, cruelty-free, and a modern synthetic blend of Arylide Yellow 5GX with a finer particle size giving the color its earthy yellow translucence and a dash of Quinacridone magenta to enrich its orangish appearance.
