Colorful blacks are made by adding small amounts of a chromatic pigment to black. Well aware of its advantages, we chose ivory black as the pigment for our base paint, even though it has such a high tinting strength, deep color, and coarse texture that most pigments cannot assert themselves in mixtures. Magenta, however, an extraordinarily fine-grained pigment, settles in the voids, allowing a delicate red to glow out of the intermediate spaces. The opulence of the mixture of these two dramatically different pigments is noteworthy.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
