Naphthol Crimson is used in many ways besides its power as a pure red in graphic arts. Mixed with Ultramarine Blue it makes beautiful violets, although softer more muted violets and mauves can be made by varying the blue used such as trying Cobalt Blue or for even softer and more neutral colors try mixing with Cerulean Blue. Mixed with white it gives cool pinks, and mixed with Burnt Umber it gives a warm burgundy color. It truly is a versatile friend for the artist.
