Named after the historical dye, gained from the excretion of sea snails. Usually Cobalt Violet pigments tend toward the reddish and/or magenta range. Not this rich bluish violet shade, which has the appearance of clotted dyestuff pigments and lends itself beautifully for creating atmospheric washes in oil paint. In water based media, the pigment glazes into stunning vibrant veils of color, brought to life by the stark white of paper or a gessoed panel. Suitable for all media, including fresco plaster and concrete.
