Tartrazine Yellow is part of the Classic Retouching System Plus.
Tartrazine Yellow Pigment
Tartrazine Yellow pigment, the more colour-intensive pigment that we recommend using instead of Orange Madder in the case of retouching some Instruments from the 19th and 20th century.
Tatrazin Yellow is the best substitute for Indian Yellow. This was banned in 1908 due to its inhuman production and the suffering that was inflicted on the Indian cows. For the production of India Yellow Pigments, the cows were fed exclusively with turmeric. This caused immense digestive problems and pain in the cows.
How to retouch
- Using a drop of alcohol from the pipette, rub the desired pigments with a glass pigment grinder on the glass plate to give as many colour nuances as possible.
- Soak a paintbrush in alcohol and carefully extract the pigments in the desired colour spectrum from the glass plate, place these on the point of retouch. We recommend our high-quality Kolinsky brushes in size 3, due to its superior properties for this task.
- In the second step, fix the pigments on the point of retouch using a brush stroke of retouching lacquer. If a spatial impression occurs, add Clear-Pigment to the retouching lacquer. For this work we recommend using our Filbert point brush, which was specially developed for this purpose. The specialist brush allows precise, and flat results to be achieved at the same time.
