Our extrafine single pigment watercolor Chromium Green is prepared with pure Chromium Green pigment, chemically chromic oxide. It exists in nature as the mineral eskolaite, rare and probably never used for artistic purposes. It was introduced during the end of the modern age, at the beginning of the XIXth century and since then it has been largely used by artists (one of the first ones to use it was probably J.M.W. Turner in 1812).

Chromium Green watercolor by Nila Colori, prepared with this pure pigment, is opaque and dull olive green, with a shade similar to green earth, but having a much stronger tinting strength. It’s probably the most lightfast green. Diluted alone or mixed with other pigments it gives its best to get naturalistic colors or to cool too warm reds.

Chromium Green pigment is milled with just the right amount of a mixture of Kordofan gum arabic (binder) and vegetable glycerin (humectant and plasticyzer). These are the ingredients which are historically the main characters in the production of the watercolors and which give the best results regarding ease and pleasantness of painting. We don’t add any filler or any other organic compound, which might alter the color over time.
