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. Cobalt Violet Light has a very delicate shade of violet which appears quite opaque in mass-tone which quickly becomes transparent when applied thinly, and when glazed over a white ground, creating a very interesting range of bluish pinks. The hues are equally restrained. Always allow to cure in a good light for cleanest results.
