Cadmium Lemon Yellow
Colour Number: 2
Pigment Details: Cadmium Zinc Sulphide / Pigment Yellow 35 (PY35)
Cadmium Lemon Yellow Professional Watercolour is prepared using a light lemon (green shade) mixed crystal inorganic pigment, cadmium zinc sulphide. The pigment is a solid solution of zinc sulphide in cadmium sulphide and its hue will depend on the ratio of the two sulphides; the higher the amount of zinc sulphide the greener the cadmium yellow pigment will be. This pigment’s crystal contains relatively more zinc sulphide than the cadmium zinc sulphide pigment used in A J Ludlow’s Cadmium Yellow Professional Watercolour. It can be used on the artist’s pallet as a cool primary yellow.
The pigment has excellent heat stability, a high degree of lightfastness and chemical resistance, making it ideal for use in A J Ludlow’s Professional watercolour range.
Although containing cadmium, this metal’s bioavailabilty in the pigment used in our watercolour is very low and so the pigment is considered safe for use in our Professional watercolour range.
