Cobalt Violet LightPV14. Fast Drying. Semi-Opaque. Excellent Lightfastness. Average Oil Content.
First made from the rare ore of Cobalt Phosphate in the mid-19th century, this is now a synthetic inorganic pigment, of which the lighter shade is closer to the original, natural version. It has a very delicate shade of violet which appears quite opaque in mass-tone, but which quickly becomes transparent when applied thinly, and when glazed over a white ground, gives a very interesting range of bluish pinks. The hues are equally restrained.
