This cool turquoise blue is ideal for creating form or indicating space. It is a medium-staining semi-opaque pigment with wonderful granulating properties. A good substitute for Cerulean Blue, Manganese Blue Hue offers an additional advantage: it mixes well with other non-staining semi-opaques to create a mottled texture in underlying colors.
Note: true Manganese Blue, discontinued from product lines due to environmental concerns and toxic by-product, has been replaced in the Daniel Smith line with a formulation which closely resembles it. The result is a safe, high quality lightfast pigment with the color we adore-Manganese Blue Hue.
