Quinacridone Magenta Handmade Watercolour
One half pan of handmade watercolour, Quinacridone Magenta.
One of the three primary colours, magenta is one that is often missing in paint sets. Now that I’ve mulled my own, I know why! Magenta is both a very difficult pigment to mull, and an expensive one. However, I feel no basic set is complete without a good primary magenta, so I am very happy to have this one available for you, even if it takes a lot of hard work!
Magenta is essential for good pinks and vibrant purples. I do love a good red, but a light red isn't pink, it's light red! :)
This is a single-pigment, transparent colour that is rich and bold. I wouldn't like to be without it, but only need a touch of the wet brush most of the time.
