Our Process

Our process starts by using only the finest hand-picked Kordofan Gum Arabic Lumps and carefully blending with distilled water, this mixture is left for a few weeks until fully dissolved, we then strain this mixture through unbleached Muslin bags to remove any impurities like straw and sand which is naturally found on the gum when it falls onto the ground from the Acacia tree

Once fully strained we then add in the vegetable glycerine, a touch of biocide and gently blend using one of our mixers to ensure a smooth, fluid consistency

Once made this base mix then undergoes two weeks of quality control testing to ensure the highest possible quality

We then take the finished base mix and carefully mix in the dry pigment power(s) and any other auxiliary materials required to achieve the best possible dispersion of the pigment

Once the pigment is fully “wetted out” into a paste we carefully run this over our triple roll mill with ceramic rollers (we use ceramic rollers as metal rollers can adversely affect some pigments)

After the first run over the mill a sample of the paint is then run over our Hegman Gauge to test the fineness of the grind, we use this method to ensure the pigment has the same particle size as the previous batch, if not we run the paint over the mill again and again until we reach the desired grind

We then test viscosity, density and finally paint out a swatch of the colour against the original finalised paint test swatches

The final paint is then left for a further 2 weeks as part of our quality control process before being hand filled into our tubes, pots or pans and finally labelled

Diarylide Yellow - Just what I was looking for...

I had a specific project/image that needed a different yellow to my existing New Gamboge and Hansa Yellow Deep. This Diarylide Yellow was absolutely perfect. Deep, rich and brutally warm without treading on orange's toes. An absolute dream to use and the resulting surface was perfect.

Diarylide Yellow

It’s a very rich yellow allowing you to make warm and cool mixes depending on the mix required and will be a very useful yellow for my palette and would recommend this very useful colour to anyone

Jackman's Art Darylide Yellow

I purchased a tube of Darylide Yellow watercolour paint on recommendation by a friend, and can honestly say I am absolutely delighted with the quality of this product. It has a wonderful warm hue to it, which seems to have some opacity, but when watered down has a beautiful translucency. I am so pleased to be adding this to my pallet, and would definitely recommend trying this beautiful colour.

A WARM Yellow

A really strong buttercup yellow - described as semi-transparent , which it is applied thinly. A dominant pigmnent. I am more inclined towards PY 154 with added orange (PO 62) but well satisfied with the high quality of the paint.

Julie King
A warm yellow

A warm strong semi opaque yellow. Great for mixing warm green and orange shades.
