YInMn Blue

There has been a lot of excitement going around about YInMn Blue.

Comparison: QoR and Schmincke

Why is this so special?

It is the first new inorganic blue in over 200 years!  Since this is a new color, supply is limited.   And it’s expensive.  It is about 6 times more expensive than Cobalt because one of its components, Indium, is a rare earth element.

Per Wikipedia…    “YInMn Blue is chemically stable, does not fade, and is non-toxic.  It is more durable than ultramarine blue and Prussian blue, and safer than cobalt.”

Per Diann.   “it’s pretty!”     Yes, I’m so technical.  🙂

Quarter pans are so cute!
