I Would Have Thought By Now,

that every colour that we can see would have been found,

apparently not, a new blue has been developed, meet YInMn blue, the first new blue pigment in 200 years (image courtesy of Oregon State University), it might seem a strange name, but it is in fact named after its components, Yttrium, Indium, and Manganese and its luminous, vivid pigment never fades, even if mixed with oil and water, strangely enough blue is my favourite colour, and I mentioned in a previous post that there is no such thing as a blue parrot, back to YInMn blue, for a closer look as to how the new chemically-made pigment of the colour blue was devolved and is now available for artists have a look here.
