The modern primaries

The modern primary colors are cyan, magenta, and yellow. With these three colors (and black), you can truly mix any hue. Create reds and oranges using magenta and yellow. Discover a range of browns and greys by combining compliments, such as red/green, yellow/purple, blue/orange, and tint them further with black.

A natural/synthetic blend

These pigments are natural/synthetic hybrids (except Grey Ochre, which is all-natural). Greenleaf & Blueberry selected the pigments that best represented these modern primaries and fixed them to a natural base. They will handle more like a natural pigment, but with the bombastic high chroma punch of synthetics. Read more about the story behind these colors on the Greenleaf & Blueberry Blog.
