Different manufacturers give different names to the same colour, Even if the same pigments are used. Therefore, names may vary from one brand to another. Akua tries to use the pigments technical name for Akua Inks. For instance, the names Hansa Yellow, Phthalo Blue and Quinacridone Red refer to the specific pigment used in that ink. Some pigments may have several technical names. In that case, manufacturers' try to select the most popular name. Colours such as Olive Green, Turquoise Blue and Payne's Gray usually contain a mixture of several pigments. When trying to identify pigments used in ink or paint, research the colour index name, not the name given by the manufacturer.
