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. Excellent choice as a primary blue and for color mixing.
Like our Quinacridone Magenta, Quinoxalinedione Yellow, and Phthalocyanine Blue, 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 standard plastic Full Pans. These are durable and lightweight as well, and fit into most commercial travel watercolor boxes.
Our Full Pans measure: 3cm x 1.9cm x 1cm
Full Pans can be thought of as the portable equivalent to a tube of watercolor paint. They are twice the size of a Half-Pan and hold a whole lot of color. This size is a great choice for artists who enjoy working large. Not only does this size pan hold more paint, it also has a greater surface area which can accommodate much larger brushes. This size is also a wonderful way to carry your favorite colors. If you have used up a Half-Pan and wish to replenish a palette staple, a Full Pan can be a nice next-step. Palettes of Full Pans also make excellent flexible studio palettes; they are large enough to be used in a home studio or table-top set-up while allowing you to close up the set and take it on the road.
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.
