Mars & Antiquity

Mars Colors

The bright new inventions of 19th century chemistry, Mars colors, from Yellow to Violet, ignited a color revolution in painting by placing clean, concentrated and opaque man-made earths on the palette.

Warmer and now transparent, the modern Mars pigments, called Transparent Iron Oxides, in Red, Yellow and Brown, bring both warmth and brightness to a mixture.

Colors from Antiquity

One of the first man-made pigments in use throughout the ancient world, Genuine Naples Yellow Light, true Antimony Yellow, is still coveted over Cadmiums for its soft glowing light and subtle mixing qualities. Note: this pigment contains lead and is not for use by children.

Extremely subtle in mixing, the Mesa Verde is an authentic green earth of our own discovery. Permanent and transparent, this very old, ancient color has a granular texture and sparkle and is almost neutral in tone.
