Violet Grey

Violet Grey is a warm gray color with slight violet undertone. New from Armenia. Needs extra grinding.


Warm grey, slight lean toward violet. Composition: silica, aluminum, iron, trace minerals. Used for centuries in Armenia, only recently released to the rest of the world. Color stable in most mediums; mixes with all mediums and pigments. Semi-opaque, good tinting strength, lifts well in watercolor. The least similar to others in its color group; as with Pink Ocher, it has unique qualities that set it apart. Needs extra grinding, especially in oils. Somewhat similar to Augite Porphyry Violet, Cote d’Azur, Caput Mortuum

Price: 5 gm Violet Grey: $0.75
