Based on single pigment colors, this gouache is a professional's dream. Every color is dense, rich, and highly pigmented. No fillers, opacifiers, or adulterants alter the nature of the colors. Honey is added to gum arabic as a binder.
Color Swatch created using full strength/50/50 and was applied on cold press Bristol board (2 ply) material.
Dioxazine Violet is transparent and has very high tinting strength. Concentrated, it paints out nearly black, but it mixes with Titanium White to form birght, opaque tints of purple. PV37 produces slightly grayer tints than PV23.
Dioxazine Violet has good lightfastness. PV37 is considered slightly more lightfast than PV23.
Two molecular variants of Dioxazine Violet, PV23 and PV37, are available. They have similar properties, but mix slightly differently.
