Unfortunately I do not know how to mix quinacridone gold. I see that Golden paints manufacture that colour, but do not provide details

Golden Artist
Colors Is Forced
to Replace Quinacridone Gold

- New Berlin, NY, September 2, 2004 -

First the bad news: We have been forced to discontinue our most venerable color, a color we introduced to the marketplace, and one that soon became our signature color – Quinacridone Gold. The pigment manufacturer will no longer support the required pigment, and despite an exhaustive search, there is simply no other source to be found.

Now the good news: Through a vigilant effort, the Golden Lab, led by fearless director Jim Hayes, has created a well-matched solution to the original Quinacridone Gold. By blending a Quinacridone Gold Red Shade with Nickel Azo, the new blend called Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold achieves the wonderful characteristics of the original Quinacridone Gold, including a warm yellow-gold quality in the undertone as well as a tight tint.. Golden Artist Colors, Inc. is excited about the new formula and we hope you too will delight in its rich qualities. Watch for Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold in stores later this fall. Samples of the new color are available upon request through Customer Service.

For questions or assistance on specific projects, please contact Tech Support at techsupport@goldenpaints.com or 800-959-6543 / 607-847-6154 Mon. – Fri. 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST.

Thank you anyway. I know that it can be done because I used to have a mixing chart, but I have lost it. I know it is made w/ the quinacridone magenta, hansa medium yellow and Phthalo Blue(Green Shade), but I can't remember how many parts of each. I know that Golden has a mixing chart for there main colors that can almost make any color, but I can't find anything over the net. Thanks again for trying and letting me know they discontined the Quinacridone Gold.
