Magenta is a very lightfast organic pigment with strong bluish overtones that shine through as if it is used as a glaze. When made into hues it presents a wonderful range of decadent, strong cool pinks which evoke rich satins. In mixes with yellow lakes the results are ranges of strikingly warm gingery oranges or mixed with transparent oxide red one can almost exactly mimic the unique shades of alizarin. To make gorgeous purples mix with my Ultramarine Blue.
