Unmatched in their softness and consistency, Schmincke soft pastels were created using the finest artist's pigments and a minimum of binders. Pastel softness permits beautiful dense application, and high pigment concentration results in intense colors.
Color Swatch created using heavy to light application and was applied on 100 lb (163 gsm) drawing paper material.
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.

Ultramarine Violet is a semi-transparent, dull purple to pale violet with low tinting strength. As a pigment, it is weak in most oil applications, but it performs better in water-based mediums, pastels, and chalks. It is generally the bluest of the violet pigments, although there can be significant differences in color across brands. It is not suitable for fresco work and does not mix well with yellows. Ultramarine Violet is a variant of Ultramarine Blue, and their pigment properties are identical.
Ultramarine Violet has excellent permanence and lightfastness.
Ultramarine Violet has no significant hazards.

Dioxazine Violet is transparent and has very high tinting strength. It is a staining pigment, very dark valued when it is used at full strength. Concentrated, it paints out nearly black, but it mixes with Titanium White to form bright, opaque tints of purple. PV23 produces slightly redder shades than PV37. Because the hue can vary with the conditions of preparation and grinding, it may be offered in red shade, blue shade, and so forth.
Dioxazine Violet has good lightfastness. There may be some concern about it fading or shifting in color in tints and washes. Some artists have reported that PV37, a molecular variant, is more lightfast than PV23.
Two molecular variants of Dioxazine Violet, PV23 and PV37, are available. They have similar properties, but mix slightly differently.
Dioxazine Purple, Chromothal Violet, Mauve, Carbazole Violet.
