I realized that I don't have a favorite acrylic mustard yellow paint. That deep yellow with a hint of khaki or brown. It just isn't in my pallette.

What brand/name is your go-to mustard color paint?

Are we painting German tanks? If so, always Tamiya Dark Yellow, airbrushed.

I had German mustard with my Polish sausage last weekend, and my stomach was OK, so I guess WW2 is really over.

Not for tanks – ancients and some fantasy.

French's yellow, best on hot dogs!

My goto for acrylics is Yellow Oxide. (Liquitex specifically but should be about the same for any artist acrylics.)

Americana Antique Gold is a good one for me,
also great as a base coat for brighter yellows

Humbrol acrylic M24 Trainer Yellow turned out to be a really good mustard yellow. I'm uncertain if they have now corrected their error or not.

Yellow ochre – any particular brand preference?

GildasFacit Sponsoring Member of TMP19 Mar 2021 5:31 a.m. PST

I use Vallejo Goldbrown, which also has the added advantage of very good coverage.

Dukewilliam19 Mar 2021 8:28 a.m. PST

Vallejo Green Ochre. It's called green but it is the perfect dunkelgelb. Trust me.

I have an old GW Bubonic yellow – an octagonal pot several generations of GW paints old. Out of production in the seventies ? But still going strong !

Will any of the above recommendations work for the yellow
stripes on WWII Japanese tanks?
thanks in advance for any help.
