Yellow paint

I am not sure if this is the right section to post this in, but here goes.

It always puzzled me why yellow is a difficult colour to paint.

I finally asked Google.

The answer was, ' The pigmentation is thin'
The cure for this is to use a white or light grey undercoat. Several layers may be necessary.
I tried this today, using white (3 layers)
The result was much better.

Some of you probably know this already because I have seen some stunning yellow machines, but I thought I would share my yellow enlightenment.
I hope this helps some of you.

I have noticed it myself that painting with yellow is frustrating.
Thanks for the tip
