We are so happy to include Nickel Azo Yellow into the Kroma colour palette. This was a bit of a long time coming, but is the first of a stream of new pigments and products we hope to unroll this year. We hope you enjoy!
Nickel Azo Yellow is an azo/nickel complex organic pigment which has a dull, brownish-yellow mass tone with a clean greenish undertone. It is very translucent with strong tinting power and excellent lightfastness. Because of its tinting power and translucency, it is very useful for glazing techniques and watercolour style washes.
We were recently asked to custom formulate a very special blue screen paint for a production that is currently in town. We had so much fun! Here are some action shots from our production...
Part of today's day was spent making Acrylic Black Gesso - an acrylic primer used to cover canvas or board in preparation for painting in acrylic or oil. Black gesso is used instead of white gesso when the painter is looking to work on a surface without the cool, bright glow of a traditional white background.
