Our Extrafine Handmade Watercolor Cobalt Turquoise Light is prepared with Cobalt Turquoise Light inorganic mineral pigment, chemically belonging to the family of the blue-green cobalt titanate spinels.
The Extrafine Handmade Watercolor Cobalt Turquoise Light is made in Italy by Nila Colori and is a green-blue color with excellent lightfastness, semi-opaque and quite intense.
Cobalt Turquoise Light pigment is milled with just the right amount of a mixture of Kordofan gum arabic (binder) and vegetable glycerin (humectant and plasticyzer). These are the ingredients which are historically the main characters in the production of the watercolors and which give the best results regarding ease and pleasantness of painting. We don’t add any filler or any other organic compound, which might alter the color over time.
