Reformulation for Williamsburg Van Dyke Brown

February 21, 2020

Dear Customers of Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors Van Dyke Brown:

Due to the pigment Bituminous Earth being discontinued by the manufacturer, Golden Artist Colors, Inc. has found it necessary to reformulate the existing Van Dyke Brown.

Because of Van Dyke Brown’s historical significance and important color space, GOLDEN has decided to keep the name, but use alternative pigments moving forward. Van Dyke Brown will remain in the Williamsburg family of colors, but it will now be made with PBk9 Ivory Black and PR101 Synthetic Transparent Red Iron Oxide. Look for our Just Paint Newsletter on understanding the new blends, on, targeted for publication by end of February.

The new Van Dyke Brown will start appearing in art stores sometime in May 2020.
