Our custom color for 2012, Skink Tail Blue, was created by IU painting professor Caleb Weintraub. In the process of creating the color Weintraub mixed over 40 different blue colors, including mixing formulations for each. A photo of some of the swatches may be seen on this page. From these swatches a color was chosen. Then the store staff voted on a name for the color from a list Weintraub had prepared, and the swatch, name, and formula were sent off to Gamblin Artist Colors for them to manufacture the color. Skink Tail Blue is a light cerulean blue.
