Chroma is considering changes to the color range of Atelier Interactive and Archival Oils. For some colors, the pigments are no longer available. We also have received a number of requests for additions to the line, and in order to accommodate these requests, some less popular colors would be discontinued.
Colors considered for removal or replacement:
• Permanent Brown Madder – The pigment supply is no longer available, and the probable replacement color is Quinacridone Burnt Orange
• Permanent Alizarine – The pigment supply for this color is no longer available, and the probable replacement for this color will be Pyrrole Alizarine, a very rich color and the best modern Alizarine available
• Naples Yellow Reddish – One that can be easily mixed
• Orange – Transparent Perinone Orange is preferable
• Toning Grey Yellowish and Toning Grey Pinkish -It is easy to mix replacements colors for these and they make way for the more interesting greens
• Brown Black - To be replaced by a reddish shade of umber pigment which could be called “Van Dyke Brown”
• Napthol Crimson – Very similar to Pyrrole Crimson, which is a superior color.
Colors being considered for introduction include:
• Lemon Yellow - The greenest possible yellow, greener than Transparent Yellow
• Pyrrole Alizarine - As replacement for Permanent Alizarine
• Viridian - A popular green for which we have had a number of requests
• Yellow Green – A highly saturated Yellow Green
• Quinacridone Burnt Orange - As a replacement for Permanent Brown Madder
• Van Dyke Brown or Brown Earth - Possible replacements for Brown Black
• Micaeous Oxide - A dark metallic grey. Many artists have asked for this to mix their own blends and particularly good for grounds
• Toning Grey Mid - Stays, but the mica component would be removed
This means that there are only eight out of seventy five to be replaced or re-considered. Do you have any ideas on what colors you would like to see included and which ones you think we could do without? Please add comments and suggestions below, as we are always interested in feedback from users of our paints.
