Color index, etc

Somewhere in the oil channels is a wonderful post containing someoneís chart of color index numbers, common names, and some description of their behavior in tints, etc.

I found it a couple of weeks ago, and thought Iíd saved it to favorites, but evidently didnít. I havenít been able to find it again; story of my life, right? I remember discussion -by some of WCís greats- of possibly posting it in the FAQ section once the one who posted it agreed. Any ideas? Iíd love to find that again.

Many thanks, painters!

Re: Color index, etc

Was this the thread? I feel like it had some interesting things but you want to really cross reference everything in that.

For a truly great resource check out Artiscreation, it has notes on nearly every pigment, with cross reference information on where they got the information and notes from various sources. Also gives a lot of information about how the pigments act in various vehicles and more as well. Huge resource of information that I refer to often.

Re: Color index, etc

Handprint has extensive information here. Even though it is geared toward watercolors, most of the pigments that it discusses are used in oils, acrylics, and other media, so it is very useful.

Thank you, AJ. I no longer recall what it was in that thread that I wanted to review, but youíve all been very generous with excellent resources.
