Color Changes - Please Respond!

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 being considered for introduction include:



. Lemon Yellow



. Pyrrole Alizarine



. Viridian



. Yellow Green - highly saturated Australian Yellow Green or mid tone Chromium Green Yellow

. Quinacridone Orange- possibly with a burnt tinge



. Van Dyke Brown or Brown Earth



. 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





Colors considered for removal or replacement:



. Permanent Brown Madder -the pigment supply is no longer available



. Permanent Alizarine - the pigment supply for this color is no longer available either

.

. Naples Yellow Reddish - one that can be easily mixed



. Orange - replacing it with Quinacridone Orange



. 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 Brown Earth or similar.



This means that there are only seven out of seventy five to be replaced or re-considered. Please add comments and suggestions, as we are always interested in feedback from users of our paints!

Seem like reasonable changes to me.

Re: Color Changes - Please Respond!

What would be your equivalent of Alizaron Crimson or Hooker's Green? I am interested in switching to Interactive but have always used Liquitex.

Re: Color Changes - Please Respond!

I, too, liked the Liquitex Hooker's Green. What is your closest equivalent? I really like the Interactives but sure miss Hooker's Green and I'm mixing a lot of French Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Yellow to do my flower paintings. I still have a tube of your Permanent Alizarine but now that I also have the Quinacridone Magenta I find that if mixed with Yellow Cadmium gives me all of the various "Alizarines" that I need.

Try Permanent Alizarine - it is a beautiful crimson color. I have even tested the considered replacement color, Pyrolle Alizarine, and it is great too.

Hooker's Green is a perennial favorite, and I will suggest adding it to the line. In the meantime, try Forest Green, it's a beautiful dark transparent green with a bright undertone.

I use interactives all the time and Forest Green is one of my favorites - I have recently fell in love with Pyrrole Red and Vermillion - 2 great colors. For my apple still life I do a lot of blending with Permanent Alizarine, Cadmium Red Medium and Pyrrole Red and I also blend in a dab of Vermillion for some nice sparkle - nice juicy looking apples!

Darn! I've just started using interactives and this is what I use as my skin tone starting colour!

( and it doesn't look green to me! )

OH pooh. I LOVE Alizarine, especially for shadows and details on red flowers.... I hope we can keep it. that Pyrrole doesn't look anywhere near it. ;-( well if that's the case I'll just have to buy a lifetime supply before it's all gone...

Re: Color Changes - Please Respond!

I know this is an old post but I just wanted to say that I'm glad you guys didn't remove the toning grays from the line! They are a real time saver for building up skin tones and what is even better the guarantee consistency across multiple painting and series, as I do often. Thanks!
