Mountain Green

Add to medium chrome yellow sufficient cobalt to produce the desired hue, adding a little white if necessary.


Three parts of dark chrome green, one part of ultramarine blue, and a little white lead will give an excellent myrtle color.

Night Green

Seven parts of chrome green and three parts of yellow ochre will give this shade.

Nile Green

Five parts of white, nine of emerald green and six of Prussian blue will give this shade.


Mix together ten parts of lemon chrome yellow, one part of ultramarine blue and one part of light Indian red. Another method is to use eight parts of lemon chrome yellow, one part of blue black and one part of Prussian blue. Or the following proportions give very good shades: three parts black, four parts white, four parts red, two parts yellow, and eleven parts green. Or, fifteen parts of white, twenty of red, twelve of yellow, and fifty-three of green. Some painters add equal portions of Prussian blue and lamp black to lemon chrome yellow for a base, or the base may be ochre instead of chrome, and a little of the yellow be added.

Oriental Green

Is made by mixing equal proportions of raw umber and lemon chrome yellow.

Royal Green

This color is sold ready made.

Peacock Green

A mixture of seven parts of white, fifty parts of emerald green and forty-three of Prussian blue will give this shade. A little yellow is sometimes added. The color is best produced by giving a final transparent coat over a ground color. For the ground mix a rich green, a very deep Brunswick green and middle chrome. Over this apply a very thin coat of a deep bluish green made from Prussian blue and lemon chrome.

Pea Green

Forty-eight parts of white lead and one part of chrome green will give this color, or emerald green may be used if desired. Some makers mix medium chrome green and white lead in the proportion of five parts of the latter to one part of the former to obtain a pea green, but the proportions may be varied considerably according to the exact shade required.

Persian Green

This is only another name for emerald green, the vivid and somewhat staring hue being sometimes employed in oriental decorations and being then termed Persian green.


This is a yellowish green shade. It may be obtained by mixing seven parts of black, one of yellow ochre and one and half of chrome green. Or chrome yellow may, if desired, be substituted for the ochre.

Prussian Green

To produce this, mix five parts black, three parts chrome yellow and twelve parts emerald or medium chrome green.

Quaker Green

Mix equal proportions of Venetian red and medium chrome yellow and add blue black. Add to this mixture a quantity of chrome green equal in bulk to the three. This will give an excellent quaker green.

Reed Green

Mix white, chrome yellow and chrome green in about equal quantities to produce this shade. The name, however, has no special significance, and an admixture of almost any yellow and green, lightened up with white, might be used instead.

Sage Green

This may be produced by tinting white lead with four parts of light chrome green and one part of ivory black, or the white lead may be tinted with a mixture of French ochre, lamp black, and Prussian blue. Another recipe is as follows: Add raw umber and chrome green in the proportion of about one part of the former to two parts of the latter added to white lead until the desired shade is obtained. A pale Brunswick green and a very little black used to tint white also gives a good sage green.

Sap Green

Mix with white lead, medium chrome yellow and a very little lamp black.

Sea Foam
