Magenta is bright and luminous on its own, or makes brilliant mixes and lovely tints. It makes a beautiful range of oranges and purples, warm reds, and it neutralizes some greens.; Sennelier gathers only the finest organic and inorganic pigments from around the world. These pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a rich satin finish. This paint has a unique buttery texture.
