It reminds me of the Crayola “Denim” color. Am I the only one who still uses crayola colors to describe the world? Florina June 2nd, 2013 Very, very interesting this daily history of colours… Simple yet educational fabrice June 6th, 2013 Loving this feature. Re-using it on my own blog every week. THANK YOU! Isaku June 7th, 2013 This reminds me of a bell curve from a statistical analysis. If only university textbooks were this pretty, I’d be more motivated to study harder. Lynette Manteau June 8th, 2013 Oh how I miss the color of the day. Surely you could do a color of the week. Pretty please. Toni June 13th, 2013 Smalt Who knew. I’ve been working with color all my life and never heard this. Very interesting. Love color of the day. Marjorie June 25th, 2013 During my morning walk I noticed an endearing house with smalt colored shutters and thought I want that in my new home that I am in the beginning steps of manifesting – is it divine intervention, I believe so, any comments? Sara June 29th, 2013 Love smalt! Vivian July 16th, 2013 Very interesting! Gary July 19th, 2013 I too am an artist of some years, and I had not heard of smalt. Thanks also for the historical references to cobalt and ultramarine. I happened upon this site while researching a crossword clue. What a nifty idea! Janet Husband November 28th, 2013 You state that smalt was made from coarsely ground cobalt blue glass. But where did the cobalt blue glass get its color? I think you meant coarsely ground blue cobalt. Maxwell Tielman November 28th, 2013 Janet— smalt actually is the powdered form of cobalt glass, created by crushing cobalt glass.
