Question Yellow pigment with brown masstone?

Hi, looking for a pigment that's brown/earth when it's thick that thins out to yellow. Does such a thing exist?

Thanks

Edit: As luck would have it, I just found this after I posted, Nickel Azo Yellow: https://www.justpaint.org/williamsbu...-7-new-colors/

Transparent yellow iron oxide is also useful.

Re: Yellow pigment with brown masstone?

As Williamsburg notes, Nickel Azo Yellow is chemically related to PY128 (Green Gold), and has a similar difficult-to-pin-down color change from masstone to tint or glaze. So although this may be the color you seek, you may find that it requires some practice to get the desired effects.

Yellow Ochre, and the related Transparent version, are brownish-yellow in masstone, becoming more noticeably yellow in tint and especially in very thin glaze. This is more noticeable with the Transparent version. But I don't think that the masstone is as dark brown as you want.

Correction: Above, should be PY129, not PY128.

Re: Yellow pigment with brown masstone?

Those Williamsburg Nickel Azo Yellow and Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide are stunning - I don't know of those colors having such dark brown masstone in any brand of acrylic. Quinacridone Gold is another but its undertone is more orangish-yellow.

Probably because of the smaller pigment load in acrylics. It is handy.. but not exaclty necessary to have a same color that behaves in such a varied way :P
