Green shades

Green shades – outdoors

Green shades appear brighter and stronger on a facade than on a sample. The tone also changes and becomes colder and sometimes almost blue-green. Green is unusual within Swedish façade traditions. In order to reflect the green colours in nature, the sample must be both dark and distinctly yellow in tone.

The pigment mostly in use for the production of green linseed oil paint is chromium oxide green; not to be confused with the older chrome green or zinc green pigments, which are toxic. In order to produce our various green tones, we break chromium oxide green with black, umbra, ochre and iron oxide yellow and so forth. Green shades can also be easily mixed with black or blue shades together with yellow shades. This results in a wide range of shades.
