Binder: Virgin cold-pressed linseed oil, washed
Pigment: PV 23 / Organic: Dioxazine Violet (red shade)
Lightfastness: 1 (excellent)
Our Dioxazine Purple is made from the red shade dioxazine violet pigment which is more lightfast than the blue shade variety. It has a black top tone easily making smokey, deep, dark shades as well as intense, eye-candy purple tints. Perfect for the floral painter or colorist. With its powerful tinting strength, hues akin to cobalt violet are produced with our warm-tinting Flake White - but with greater influence in mixtures. With our Titanium White, the purples and violets produced are equally brilliant, a little bluer, and cooler. Try with Ultramarine Blue, Quinacridone Rose or Alizarin Crimson Permanent for a floral medley of colors (tinted out). It makes beautiful deep neutrals with Cadmium Yellow or Yellow Ochre.
