Maize

The shade maize or corn refers to a specific tone of yellow; it is named for the cereal of the
same name - maize (called corn in the United States and Canada).

In public usage, maize can be applied to a variety of shades, ranging from light yellow to a
dark shade that borders on orange, since the color of maize (the actual corn) may vary.

The first recorded use of maize as a color name in English was in 1861.

Opera Mauve

Mauve is a pale purple color named after the mallow flower (French: mauve). The first use of the word mauve as a color was in 1796–98 according to the Oxford English Dictionary, but its use seems to have been rare before 1859. Another name for the color is mallow, with the first recorded use of mallow as a color name in English in 1611.

Mauve contains more gray and more blue than a pale tint of magenta. Many pale wildflowers called "blue" are more accurately classified as mauve. Mauve is also sometimes described as pale violet.

The first recorded use of opera mauve as a color name in English was in 1927

Quinacridone Magenta


β€œMagenta” was a violet red aniline dye first produced in 1859. Originally called fuchsine by the French Chemist
François-Emmanuel Verguin who made and patented the dye, it was later renamed to commemorate the
Italian-French victory at the Battle of Magenta on June 4, 1859, which was near the Italian town of Magenta
in Lombardy.


In 1935, the family of quinacridone dyes were developed and the transparent intense violet-red pigment
Quinacridone Magenta was born shortly afterwards, being first produced in 1958. Winsor & Newton were the
first to make this colour for artists.

Quinacridone pigments are unique because they are strong colours whilst also being transparent, ranging in
hues from yellow to orange to red to violet. These are synthetic pigments which are considered high performing
due to their colour intensity and lightfastness, as a result they are used in industrial and automobile industries.

The discovery of the family of quinacridones would eventually lead to the first reliable and lightfast alternative
to the intense, but fugitive, alizarins. These days, though modern formulations of Winsor & Newton’s alizarin are
lightfast, they have a Permanency Rating of B (moderately permanent) whilst Quinacridone Magenta has a higher
Permanency Rating of A (permanent).

For a colour so renowned for its’ intensity, there is a surprising fact about Magenta: it is not on the light spectrum.
So, if it isn’t there, how can we see it? The answer lies in how we see light. When our brain sees waves of light from
two ends of the spectrum, red and violet, scientists have learned that our brain invents a new colour for us,
halfway between the two colours. Magenta has no wavelength attributed to it, unlike all the other spectrum
colours, because it is really a bridge between colour; it was invented by our minds to address a perceived gap.

The light spectrum doesn’t need to fill every gap, but obviously the human mind wants to make sense of colour,
and a part of that process of making sense of colour created magenta.
