IRIODIN® Pearl Luster Pigments

Iriodin® Pearl Luster Pigments consist of thin platelets of the natural material mica, coated in a wafer-thin layer of metal oxide (e.g. titanium oxide or iron oxide). Through a combination of transparency, refractive index, coating thickness and multiple reflections varied color effects are produced, such as those found elsewhere only in nature - silver white, interference, gold and multi-colored metallic luster effects. This creates semi-transparent pigments which give a coating the soft, deep luster that is characteristic of pearls and mother-of-pearl. The effect varies from silky smooth to glittery, depending on the particle size distribution.

Muscovite, Mica Flakes
Similar to biotite, muscovite is a phyllosilicate mineral and the most common of the mica group minerals. The term muscovite is derived from the name “Muscovy-glass“, due to the mineral’s traditional use in Russia as a cheaper and temperature resistant alternative to glass in windows. The common rock-forming mineral may occur in phyllites, schists, gneises and granites, often in association with quartz, potassium feldspar and biotite. Muscovite crystals are transparent and translucent, flaky and form thin, flexible and elastic sheets with a pearly to vitreous luster. Commonly muscovite is colorless and may show tints of pale grey, brown, green, yellow and light red. Muscovite is used as a special filler and extender. Due to its pearly luster and sparkle, it brightens pigments and adds glimmer to paints, glazes and cosmetics. Muscovite is found throughout the world, large sources being Bihar in India, New Mexico and Siberia.

Painter's Gold Varnish & Rosenoble Gold Powder
vs. Gold Leaf

Painter´s Gold varnish (#98446) is a solvent based nitrocellulose laquer, which is pigmented with genuine gold particles. The shade and effect of fine gold pigment differs from the one of metal leaf. This is also the case for Painter´s Gold (#98443) or Rosenoble Gold powder (#98301) as well as for all kinds of pearlescent or glitter pigments. A small, flake-shaped particle can be gold coloured, but it will always remain a small particle. Therefore surfaces coated with these pigments will always look different than genuine gold leaf.

Berliner Blau: Alexander Kraft

Vom frühneuzeitlichen Pigment zum modernen Hightech-Material, 312 Seiten

Das Buch erzählt die spannende Geschichte eines tiefblauen Farbpigments, das vor drei Jahrhunderten als „Berliner Blau“ oder „Preußisch Blau“ seinen Siegeszug um die Welt begann und heute als Hightech-Material verwendet wird. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf der Darstellung des buchstäblichen Wirtschaftskrimis um das Herstellungsgeheimnis in einem Umfeld von Alchemie, frühneuzeitlicher Naturforschung und politischen Reibungen der Zeit, der 1724 in einer Rezeptveröffentlichung in den renommierten Londoner Philosophical Transactions mündete.

Experiment Set for the production
of Berlin Blue

The set includes the two chemicals Iron-(II)-Sulphate (#64200) and Yellow Prussiate of Potash (#64202). 5 g of Iron-(II)-Sulphate are dissolved in one liter of water and 5 g of Yellow Prussiate of Potash in one liter of water. The two aqueous solutions are then poured together to give the Berlin Blue.
