Guignet of Paris patented the process for manufacturing Viridian Green in 1859. The popularity of this bright, exceedingly clear blue-green color led some to believe that it could eventually replace all other greens, both ancient and modern. To mimic the near perfect bluish green, Golden blended a concoction of Phthalo Blue Red Shade, Nickle Azo Yellow, Zinc White and Raw Umber. The result has mixing properties different than any single green pigment offered through Golden and is a useful replacement for artists familiar with the original.
