Product Details

Color:
Luminous Opera
Size:
60 ml
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.

Rhodamine 6G

Fluorescent Blue-Violet BV11

Permanence

Rhodamine 6G, like all fluorescent dyes, is not considered permanent, however it is reported  to have high stability for a fluorone dye.

Toxicity

Rhodamine 6G is toxic, however it can be biologically inactive and hence non-toxic in a lake pigment form.
