'NOT IN MANUFACTURE' PIGMENTS
OR MANUFACTURING DATE 'TBA'
At most times this is temporary as pigments and products sell out and the production of pigments can take up 15 to 30 days to produce (ordering reactants, chemical reactions, removal from reactor, removal of unreacted trace metals and contaminates, filtering and grinding, washing, press cakes and drying, filtering and washing and drying again etc... Over time some chemicals and reactants used in the manufacture of pigments become unavailable or change to other alternatives. This can make exact pigment chemistries and formulations difficult or impossible to reproduce and sometimes pigments 'not in manufacture' will be either temporary or on rare circumstances permanently unavailable.
COLOUR ON SCREEN TO REAL LIFE COLOUR
Most pigments, colourants and colour effect absorb and transmit reflected light to your eyes. These transmissions are multiple wave lengths simply defined as "short", "medium" and "long" wavelengths within the spectrum range of approx 390nm to 700nm. Your own unique eye (cones/receptors) and brain actual determine what colour you see, and this is different for each individual person. Now adding that a computer or device screen operates on light emitting diodes (LED's) mainly using 3 exact wavelengths and no external light sources (eg the sun) your eye and brain sees little coloured lights as pixels in RGB to trick you. Hence the screen colour is not the same as real particles and millions of reflected light waves. Please consider purchasing any colours to really appreciate them with your eyes, and if you don't trust your computer or device to colour accuracy just purchase a 10 gram sample for $3-$4 for your peace of mind or brain...
