Vasari still carefully handcraft their colours in small amounts and even fill every tube by hand. Their traditional methods of paintmaking ensure the purity of colour and lush consistency, enabling them to impart the secret of the Old Masters to the modern day painter. Working with only the best oil and the finest authentic pigments, they refuse to dull, stiffen, or weaken colours with fillers such as chalk or wax.
Offering superior lightfastness over other cool mixing synthetic pigments, we chose a modern high strength Quinophthalone pigment to handcraft this clean delicate yellow able to gently mix into very satisfying natural greens or oranges with other primary blues or reds.
Although not as intense as the more vivid Cadmium Yellow Lemon, the softer, less opaque Sulphur Yellow will hold the value better in a mixture, than will the Cadmium, and not act as a white.
Strong, permanent, and semi-opaque, our Sulphur Yellow is a best choice economical alternative for a Cadmium when deciding on a primary yellow for a limited palette.
