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