Definition of Indian yellow in English:
An orange-yellow pigment originally obtained from the urine of cows fed on mango leaves.
- Matching the pigments was another challenge because rich dark brown, made from ground-up Egyptian mummies, and Indian yellow, distilled from cow urine, are now difficult to obtain.
- The story of Indian Yellow pigment seems more like myth than fact.
