45320 YInMn-Blue Kremer Pigment, 10g glass jar

£54.12 (inc. VAT)
A completely new blue pigment from Kremer. Spectacularly vibrant blue between cobalt and ultramarine. A wonderful new addition to any palette, it is ideally suited to Lascaux's water resoluble medium or Kremer's dispersion K52. It also looks fabulous in Kremer's watercolour medium

YInMn-Blue is the most recent of the big new pigment discoveries. The mixed oxide pigment from the very expensive rare earth yttrium (Y), the extremely rare semi-metal indium (In) and manganese (Mn) has a rather complex chemical composition. Unexpected difficulties in the research of new mixed oxide pigments led to particular problems in the production. Up to this day, this new pigment is produced only in small quantities. In very well-defined cycles of reactions at very high temperatures, a bright blue pigment, which was so colour pure in the colour circle was previously inaccessible, dark blue between ultramarine blue and cobalt. Due to its reflection in the infrared range, colours mixed with YInMn-Blue reach completely new colour ranges. The YInMn-Blue is extremely lightfast, temperature resistant and well opaque. YInMn-Blue requires little oil and is well suited for tempera and water colours. Acrylic technique works with the dispersions K52 and K9, but less in dispersion K498.
