The 2018 colour chart shows 108 colours, without the pigment information. They are available in 5ml and 15ml tubes and some pan colours. Note in this range there are only a possible three stars for lightfastness. Many of the problem fugitive colours have been reformulated :-) but there are a lot of two and three-pigment mixes.
The colour chart also shows a series of symbols
T = Transparent,
N = Non stain
E = Easy lift
H = hard lift
X = granulating
B = Semi transparent
O = opaque
S = Staining
I = intense.
I've added this information to the swatches, though sometimes it seems contradictory.
I was told about these dot cards being available so have been able to update these swatches to include the full current range. These charts also have pigment information so are really helpful. Where I have swatches of the old and the new colour I've included both. The swatches are arranged according to the 2018 colour chart.
I always avoid PR83. The other less lightfast pigment, PR23, has been removed from the range. These swatches have been updated and are quite accurate in colour.
Marine Blue is very beautiful, however it is now made with PB16 + PG7 - perhaps a new version of PB16 since it is apparently the same hue.
