Visit our blog post Mars Colors: Bold and Bright that explores the modern Mars Colors, paired with museum Masterpieces and mixing examples.

Cadmiums, cobalts, chromium and all the Mars colors, from yellow to violet, are the bright new inventions of 19th century chemistry that sparked a color revolution in painting, well into the 20th and the modern age. Because we carefully make our paint in small batches and hand-fill our tubes and cans, the Mars colors we offer are as inspiring as the original colors favored by the Pre-Raphaelite painters through the avant-garde movement of Fauvism….Mars colors with the most vibrant masstones possible, the richest opacity, and the greatest tinting strength.

Mars Yellow is milled with the finest alkali refined Linseed Oil in limited quantities for a naturally drying durable paint film.
