Prussian Blue Hue 5oz Tube, GOLDEN Historical Heavy Body Acrylic


Golden Historical Acrylic - Prussian Blue Hue
Serendipity played a part in the creation of Prussian Blue. A pigment-maker named Diesbach, working in Berlin around 1704, attempted using a mixture of ground bones and blood to create a red color. He was surprised when his experiment produced a remarkable blue instead. Known as the "first of the modern pigments," Prussian Blue is significant as the first artificial pigment with a known history and an established date of first preparation. Artists who struggle with replacing true Prussian Blue pigment with the acidy clean Phthalos will appreciate this re-creation. This new blend of Phthalo Blue Red Shade, Dioxazine Purple and Bone Black - with a deep, dark reddish blue cast - achieves as close a hue as can be created today without using the stubborn Prussian Blue pigment in an acrylic emulsion.
