Lamp black is a very opaque, heavily staining black pigment that does not have much covering power. It is typically the most opaque black in watercolor form. Though a very pure black, it tends to muddy slightly in mixtures, is one of the slowest drying pigments in oils, and should not be used under other colors.
Lamp Black is very lightfast and absolutely permanent. It is used in all techniques in permanent painting.
Lamp Black is slightly toxic by skin contact and inhalation. It is a possible human carcinogen.
Lamp Black is a carbon based black traditionally produced by collecting soot (known as lampblack) from oil lamps. It is the black found in Egyptian murals and tomb decorations and was the most popular black for frescoing until the development of Mars Black.

PR202 has a bluish red color, but is more yellow than Quinacridone Red (PR122), which is the modern favorite for Magenta in CMYK (four color) process printing.
Although it is not the most famous magenta in the quinacridone family of pigments, PR202 belongs to a related class chemically, and is thus relatively stable and permanent for a bluish red pigment. It is one of the pigments often used in inks and toners for process printing.
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.
PR202 has been widely used as an automotive paint. Other applications include packaging, printing inks, and textiles.
