A beautiful granulating pigment from South Africa, Sugilite is another standout in our line of PrimaTek colors. First found in 1944 and named for its Japanese discoverer, the rare opaque mineral ranges from grayish lavendar to pink to deep purple. Transparent as a watercolor pigment, it combines subtle fuchsia pink and warm gray in a single strongly textural color. In a wash, the gray settles with a slight graphite-like sheen, while the pink rises to resemble the color in an overcast dawn sky. It’s a great complement to golds, oranges and greens, including Quinacridone Gold and Sap Green.
