MATISSE FLOW S2 MANGANESE BLUE HUE

$15.80

Size:
75ml

Manganese Blue Hue is a Limited Edition

A synthetic green blue pigment was formed "when an aqueous solution of permanganate of potash yields with baryta-water a violet mixture which afterwards becomes colour-less and deposits a blue precipitate" first mentioned in the late 1800's Only becoming commercially available in the 1930's {when IG Farbenindustries AG patented it in 1935} - however production appears to have been phased out only recently in the 1990's due it seems to the cost vs other pigments on the market such as cobalts and phthalocyanines, together with the fact that it contained barium and was deemed to be toxic. Therefore now days any artist paint manufactures who offer the colour make a blend to arrive at the same hue.

 
Today while Matisse does manufacture to order a very small amount of colour based on the original Manganese blue - it has matched the original colour perfectly in the Manganese Blue Hue. Embedded with the wonderful mass tone of the original colour together with its rich undertones the Manganese Blue Hue is made on safe, non toxic pigments rendering it totally safe for use by all artists (and the environment)

Matisse Flow Formula paints are vibrant, intense colours in a low viscosity formula that glides from the brush.

Matisse Flow Formula has all the attributes of the Structure Formula; however, it has a thinner viscosity to allow free flowing brushstrokes or use through an airbrush (with minimal dilution). This allows the paint to be used for fine brushwork with or without water dilution. This paint gives a fine flow with a low-sheen finish and good levelling. Matisse Flow is available in 95 colours covering the full colour spectrum, including several uniquely Australian colours and Metallics.

Matisse Flow Formula paint is a premium artist acrylic paint ideal for mural work, canvas painting, geometrics, hard edge painting techniques, photo realism, fine detailed portrait painting, poster colour and watercolour techniques can be simulated quite easily. In fact, any art that requires intense smooth colours.

Matisse Flow Formula paints are fully compatible with all the range of Matisse Mediums and Matisse Background colours to create a highly versatile painting system for artists.
