In stock




  • Anthraquinone Blue is a single pigment paint that is a very dark, transparent midnight blue. It has a moderately strong tinting strength, yet is easily controlled when creating mixes. Also known as Indanthrone Blue, this blue is more commonly associated with an indigo. It is reminiscent of the night sky when extended with wax medium, maintaining lots of depth and richness as well. Though it has a slightly reddish cast, it's equally suited to mixing deep purples as well as deep greens. When mixed with white, it tends to grey out to a "navy", and if bluish grey is what you are looking for, try mixing it with any of the umbers and wax medium. It has very different properties than the Phthalo Blues, Ultramarine or Prussian Blue.
