A curiosity about the composition of ‘rose gold’ jewelry took me on a journey of discovery around the colors of gold.
yellow gold, white gold, rose gold
This handy chart [from Wikipedia] says it all, the % alloy alters the gold tone
My color challenge this week was to find the watercolors to reproduce the gold alloy chart – a good practice in mixing.
Final colors on my chart are shown here.
- Buff titanium
- Azo Yellow
- Hansa yellow
- Quinacrodone gold
- Burnt sienna
- Pyrrole red
- Quinacrodone rose
