I formulated the blend of organic pigments Arylide Yellow and Phthalo Green to fill the gap previously occupied by the Lead Chromate Greens, long discontinued by manufacturers because of their tendencies to darken or react with other paints. This paint differs from them not only in being a permanent lake, but also in sheer power. A fruity, loud, tropical green with exotic undertones, it almost fluoresces on its own, and cuts right into mixes to reveal light sappy yellows.
