Manganese Blue Hue, made from the same pigment as the Phthalo Blues but designed to mimic the original Manganese Blue, which is a non-staining, liftable, and granulating light blue.
Gradient: I found this slightly difficult to rewet and grade. It doesn’t get very dark, intentionally. This is definitely a sky blue type shade.
Glazing: Even the glaze doesn’t get very dark.
Color Mixes: A range of granulating, vibrant light purples and greens.
When I swatched this out in the dot cards, it struck me as being almost fluorescent – a sort of blue counterpart to Opera Pink – but now that I play with it more, it just looks like a regular light blue. Because it doesn’t get dark, it’s less versatile than a Phthalo, and I don’t like it for a sky blue as well as Cerulean. Not one I need for my palette.
