CI Name: PG26
Pigment Name: Cobalt Chromite Green Spinel
Grind: Very Fine
Cobalt Green, PG26, is a dark valued opaque blue green. At first sight Cobalt Green and its accompanying tint are reminiscent of a pine forest of silvery needles. This color makes a useful dark middle green addition to a landscape palette especially when painting pine or oak tree foliage. Cobalt Green was the first modern cobalt paint made in 1780 by Swedish chemist Sven Rinman. The varieties of Cobalt pigments are made by calcining a mixture of cobalt oxide with an alkaline carbonate and other metals to make the varying shades.
Each colour is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colours will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined and PH- balanced linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This provides total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French colour makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. The paint is packed in 37 ml and 150 ml non-reactive aluminum tubes. Larger quantities of paint are packed in aluminium cans using only the purest materials.
