    only my .02 worth.

    • Hi Steve – PY 150, Nickle Azo Yellow, is definitely gorgeous and might one day make it into the line simply on its own strengths as a beautiful color. However, for this specific project, it just didn’t have the strong warm tilt of the Indian Yellow that we were trying to match, at least taken as a single pigment. That said, it might very well play a role if we ever decided to make a more lightfast version as a blend. You can see an example of just that in our Golden line of acrylics: http://www.goldenpaints.com/products/colors/heavy-body/indian-yellow-hue In any case, thanks so much for taking the time to share you thoughts. We definitely love Nickle Azo Yellow and will continue to consider it as we look for new colors to introduce.

      Unfortunately Ultramarine Pink has been discontinued by the manufacturer. We should have supply to continue production through 2024. Ultramarine Violet is still available.
