Jaune Brilliant is a special blend of pigments that yields an extremely opaque paint. Jaune Brilliant will vary from one paint maker to another, some are more towards yellow and other more towards orange, but all are light in value. Our Jaune Brilliant definitely leans more towards orange. This is an excellent choice for printmaking. It is also a beautiful and fresh paint color to be used as is, but when used in mixes will add warmth and opacity. Due to its dense pigment load, opacity, and tinting capabilities, you will want to add plenty of wax medium to get more mileage and to help the paint flow better.
