Pigment Details: β-Quinacridone / Colour Index Pigment Violet 19 (C.I. PV19)
Quinacridone Magenta Professional Watercolour is prepared using a synthetic red-shade violet organic complex, from the quinacridone-type class of light stable and high-performance pigments. This pigment’s colour is due to its β -crystal structure, which gives it a strong intense magenta hue making it ideal for use in A J Ludlow’s Professional watercolour range.
Quinacridone compounds are a versatile sub-group of polycyclic pigments that can vary in colour from deep orange (C.I. PO48 and 49), through red (C.I. PR122, 192, 202, 206, 207 and 209) to violet (C.I. PV 19 and 42) depending on the nature of any substituent groups.
Quinacridone Magenta can be used as a primary red to create attractive purples when mixed with Ultramarine Blue and Cobalt Blue and beautiful oranges with Cadmium Lemon Yellow.
Similarly to Quinacridone Rose, the organic pigment used in Quinacridone Magenta has a smaller crystal sizes than inorganic and mineral pigments and so exhibits considerably high colour strength and staining power; it is therefore best used sparingly when initially mixing with other colours.
