Phthalocyanine Cyan (Quarter-Pan)
Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Phthalocyanine Cyan
Pigment: Phthalocyanine Cyan
Pigment Index No.: PB16
Description: An intense, cool blue that leans towards green. Wide value range, intense tinting strength.
Like our Quinacridone Magenta, Quinoxalinedione Yellow, and Phthalocyanine Green, this is a synthetic/natural hybrid, which means it is a synthetic single pigment bound to a natural mineral base. As a result these have behavior characteristics in common with both synthetic and natural pigments. These won't handle the same as synthetic colors from other paint lines.
We work with metal Quarter-Pans. They are made of steel, and will therefore stick to magnets. As described by the name, these pans hold half the volume of paint as a Half-Pan, and one quarter the volume of paint as a Full Pan.
Quarter-Pans measure: Length: 1", Width: 1/2", Height: 1/8"
All of the metal pans we work with are designed and manufactured by Art Toolkit, specifically for watercolor painting.
Quarter-Pans are compatible with our Travel Palettes in Pocket Palette and Micro Palette sized, which are Art ToolkitPocket Palettes & Demi Palettes. These palettes are extremely lightweight and packable palettes (about the size of a business card). They are an excellent way to justify carrying along a color palette, no matter where your journey will be taking you.

Please be aware that every monitor and screen displays colors a little differently. We have done our very best to show our colors as they appear in your hand.
**Please Note**: These colors are NOT intended for children. Pans are small and therefore a choking hazard. Please use only as intended.
