Green Gold, PY129, is a semi-transparent Copper Azomethine Green pigment. The colour of this green out of the tube is that of a picholine olive. It is a dark yellow-green colour that we associate with the fruit but is less pale than most olives. Green Gold retains a satiny sheen which helps it retain a dark masstone. The beauty of Green Gold is in its undertone and tint. At first the undertone appears as a very transparent virgin olive oil colour but then it imparts an amber glow within that almost contradicts its masstone and stuns the viewer. The tint of Green Gold is clean and such a departure from its parent colour that it is hard to believe it is from the same paint and if pressed to compare, the tint colour is similar to Nickel Yellow.
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.
