Coloring power of a color

The coloring power of a color.

Certain colors tend to dominate mixtures. These colors are therefore considered to have a strong coloring power.

The coloring power of a color is directly linked to the nature of the pigment.

Generally, the smaller the particles of the pigment, the more a color is coloring.

Thus, organic pigments often have a higher coloring power than mineral pigments.

Some examples of colors with high coloring power:

Phthalocyanine blues and greens - organic pigment

Quinacridone roses, mauves, reds - organic pigment

Diketo pyrrolo pyrrole reds - organic pigment

Dioxazine mauves - organic pigment

Indanthrene blue - organic pigment
