Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Mauve Blue Shade
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Mauve Blue Shade is a transparent violet color with a strong blue undertone. It is mixed with linseed/safflower oil and is a permanent color with excellent lightfastness. Mauve, originally a lake pigment, was discovered in England in 1856 by Sir William Perkin.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
Pigment Color Code: PB15 / PV19 / PV23
