Natural Yellow Oxide Our yellow oxide is a single pigment color made of natural hydrated iron oxide mineral from India.

Hydrated iron oxide is the principle coloring agent in yellow oxides. This color is based on the natural mineral goethite associated with varying proportions of others mineral such as clay, chalk, and silica. They differ from red ochers in that they contain water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is hydrated iron oxide.

Natural yellow oxides are opaque, absolutely permanent and have good covering power. They are typically more opaque than yellow ochers, because they contain a greater amount of iron oxide. Formerly, there was much confusion in the nomenclature of the hydrated iron oxides; the names provided in the Color Names table are those specified in the ASTM Standard.

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.

All images of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have 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.

Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.

Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns are scraped to show undertones.
