Description

Hansa Yellow is sometimes called Lemon Yellow, a good description.  First made in 1900, this was an early replacement for cadmium yellow.  It is non-toxic and stable, and suitable for saturated pastels – an advantage it has over cadmiums.  It never turns yellow-green in oil.  The pigment itself is very fine, and gives hansa yellow a strong tinting strength.  Of all the organic pigments, hansa yellow has one of the highest levels of light-fastness.  It is acid-proof and very permanent.
