The soft handling ability or even dispersion of this lightfast, semi-transparent pigment helps make this a fine pre-mixed violet. The rich medium to high staining pigment shows strong reddish-violet color although it contains more of its complement.
Use Permanent Violet in velvety purple washes of subjects such as pansies and other flowers.
