D275D275 Sap Green: For thousands of years green pigments were virtually unavailable, few minerals are green in color and those derived from plants produced only dull, fugitive greens.

Classic Artist Oils gives you a lightfast blend that replaces the inferior pigment with a green than can be easily warmed or cooled when mixed to your liking.

*Note: Ultramarine naturally goes very stringy in oil and can often be erratic in behavior, other manufacturers make up for this by adding large amounts of waxes and other 'stabilizers'. Sensitive to ever adding any filler in excess, our Ultramarine Blue is manufactured to achieve the extra intensity of the pure pigment. If you have worked with D230 and have a particular interest in seeing the formula altered to maintain consistency, or strongly feel that it should be left as is, we would appreciate hearing some feedback on the subject of reformulating. You can send all comments and inquiries to kwalsh@tricoat.com.

July 2009: It has come to our attention that the violet swatches above were previously mislabeled. We have identified and re-assigned the correct labels and pigment descriptions. We apologize for the mix-up and thank you for understanding.
