by other organic reds, this relatively new pigment threatens to give
cadmium a run for its money as the unusurpable king of reds. With
lightfastness rating that provoked a sea change of red in the car
industry, Diketopyrolepyrole (DPP) is a veritable dynamo. Strength of
chroma, lightfast, nearly opaque in covering power, and lacking the
health hazards associated with cadmium, DPP Red receives full marks.
Lightfastness I ; Semi-opaque
Bound in alkali refined linseed oil to maximize color warmth.
