Formulated with the help of expert watercolor artists, these unique paints mirror the strong, vivid colors of nature. They're created by mixing the finest pigments from around the world with other components at the golden ratio.
Color Swatch created using heavy application/diluted application and was applied on cold press watercolor paper (150 lb) material.
Fluorescent pigments such as BV7 offer intense and brilliant effects because they absorb ultraviolet light and re-emit light at longer wavelengths.
Fluorescent pigments are not considered permanent.
Methyl Violet 2B is a staining, transparent violet dye. It turns yellow when exposed to strong acids.
Methyl Violet 2B will fade with exposure to ultraviolet light.
Methyl Violet 2B is harmful to living cells and organisms, so it is diluted in medical and biological applications as a topical fungicide or disinfectant. Methyl Violet 2B may cause irritation to the skin, eyes, respiratory tract, or gastrointestinal tract, however no long-term or chronic ill effects are known.
Methyl Violet dyes are used in medical, biological, and pharmaceutical applications. Common Methyl Violets include Methyl Violet 2B, Methyl Violet 6B, and Methyl Violet 10B. They are often used as biological stains for cytology. The common name Gentian Violet is sometimes applied to this class of dyes. In very dilute form, Gentian Violet is often used as an antifungal agent, including in applications where there is contact with skin and other tissue. Paper impregnanted with Methyl Violet 2B is used to test pH because it turns yellow at pH 0.

Quinacridone Magenta is a semi-transparent and powerful bluish red with an impressive mixing range. It makes an excellent glazing color and is one of the bluest of the Quinacridone colors. The pigment's properties vary considerably, depending on how it is ground. Quinacridone pigments have relatively low tinting strength in general. For this reason, quinacridone colors are often expensive, because more pigment is required in the formulation.
Quinacridone Magenta offers very good lightfastness in most media, but some have argued that it is less lightfast in watercolor form. Although Quinacridone Magenta received only a passing grade of "fair" under ASTM test protocols, other test results have rated the pigment very good to excellent. Transparent reddish violet pigments in general have more problems with lightfastness than any other range of colors. PR122 is often used as the Magenta of CMYK (four color) process printing because it offers a better tradeoff between tinting strength and lightfastness than other pigments in its class.
Quinacridone Magenta has no acute hazards. Overexposure to quinacridone pigments may cause skin irritation. Quinicridone pigments contain a compound found to be a skin, eye, and respiratory irritant.
Quinacridone Magenta came from a red violet aniline dye that was first produced in 1858 by Natanson. It was called Magenta to commemorate a battle in Magenta, Italy. Over time, Magenta became the standard color name for a deep, violet red. Although quinacridone compounds became known in the late 19th century, methods of manufacturing so as to make them practical for use as commercial pigments did not begin until the 1950s. PR122 has become particularly popular in the formulation of Magenta for CMYK process printing.
