Professional quality at an affordable price — that's what you get with Holbein Heavy Body Artist Acrylics, engineered to add more luster, brilliance, and color vigor to your paintings, as well as higher lightfast ratings.
Luminous Colors — Holbein's luminous colors offer brilliance and high chroma not found in conventional pigments. Because they contain fluorescent dyes and pigments that are fugitive, this brilliance will fade and the colors will shift with exposure to ultraviolet light. The luminous color series are best suited for works that are temporary, or that are meant to be photographed and used in a digital format.
Color Swatch created using heavy application/medium application/50% tint and was applied on acrylic primed canvas (7 oz) material.
Fluorescent pigments such as BV11 offer intense and brilliant effects because they absorb ultraviolet light and re-emit light at longer wavelengths.
Like all fluorescent pigments, BV11 is not considered permanent. It will fade with exposure to ultraviolet light.
organic, fluorone dye
Rhodamine 6G is a staining reddish-yellow pigment that has fluorescent properties. It is extremely soluble in both water and alcohol. Fluorescent molecules absorb light at one wavelength and emit light at a longer wavelength.
Rhodamine 6G, like all fluorescent dyes, is not considered permanent, however it is reported to have high stability for a fluorone dye.
Rhodamine 6G is toxic, however it can be biologically inactive and hence non-toxic in a lake pigment form.
Rhodamine dyes are often used for microscopy in the biological sciences. Rhodamine 6G is often used as a laser dye.
