Yellow Oxide is an earthy yellow ochre colour. When using this colour, just a smidge and you'll achieve a lemon yellow, or a full bodied rich ochre yellow at full strength.
For a more vibrant yellow choose Sunflower Yellow Dye, Brites for CP Yellow, Micas or Liquid Yellow Dispersion. However to keep the feel of earthy yellow, use Brites for CP Yellow with Yellow Oxide blended together for added vibrance.
