Update on YInMn Blue

March 08, 2024

We are excited to announce that a limited quantity of YInMn Blue is now available for purchase through the GOLDEN online store! Available in Heavy Body Acrylic, QoR Watercolor, and Williamsburg Oil, YInMn Blue is only available for purchase within the U.S., while supplies last.

Artists will note a high cost for this color: this is driven by the extremely rare and expensive Earth elements needed in the production of the pigment, which is produced by a single supplier in very limited quantities.

For more information and to purchase YInMn Blue, click here.

We currently have extremely limited access to YInMn Blue pigment from our supplier. Therefore, we cannot take any new orders for product at this time. Once we are able to produce more product we will update this page, providing details regarding required information we need from you so that we can put your order in our system. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and truly appreciate your understanding.

Created by chemist, Dr. Mas Subramanian and his team at Oregon State University, YInMn Blue is exclusively licensed to and brought to commercialization by The Shepherd Color Company and is the first new inorganic blue in over 200 years. The YInMN Blue color exists in the space between Ultramarine and Cobalt Blue, adding a depth and warmth of color combined with opacity that extends the range of blues from which to choose.
