Excuse me, all, while I get on my soapbox for just a minute and point
out that this is an excellent example to demonstrate why pigment names
and numbers are a better identifier than paint names, even paint names
attached to a particular manufacturer. A year or two ago someone was
also talking about Rowney Permanent Yellow, but at that time Rowney's
Permanent Yellow (It even had the same number, #664) was made of PY1, an
entirely different pigment.
