Rublev Colours Chrome Ocher Pigment/Color Yellow
WARNING! CONTAINS LEAD. Please read the MSDS for more information.
Chrome Ocher is a mixed hue of yellow ocher and chrome yellow. An early twentieth century formulary gives the proportions as 14 parts yellow ocher and one part chrome yellow primrose, which is how we created this golden ocher in linseed oil.
Chrome was discovered by the French chemist Nicolas Louis Vauquelin in late 1790 in the mineral crocoite (lead sulfochromate). Vauquelin studied the different chrome compounds and found he could obtain a wide range of colors from greenish-yellow to orange shades.
A synthetic lead chromate (mainly chrome yellows) manufacturing process was published in 1809, although they were not mass produced until 1820 when the first large chrome deposits were discovered in North America.
Note: Colors swatches are shown on the left in mass tone from the tube, mixed with oil at center, and mixed with an equal amount of white on the right. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
