Composition and Permanence: The colour index name is established and published by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colourists and The Society of Dyers and Colourists. The colour index name is a generic category and does not refer to a specific pigment. While it enables the artist to form a general idea of opacity, transparency and lightfastness, for a pigment in a certain colour space, it does not provide definitive information. Many grades of pigment are available from a number of manufactures with a very wide range of physical attributes.
Chemical Name: The chemical name is a brief, commonly used generic type designation of the pigment types composition. in conjunction with the colour index name, the chemical name can be used to broaden the artists understanding of the source and nature of the pigment used.
Lightfast Rating – Permanence: The permanence of a colour is a measure of the lightfastness of the pigment when dispersed in a vehicle and subjected to conditions which emulate the exposure normally given a fine arts object. Such ratings are generally considered vehicle or media dependent and can vary between media — thus pigment which is suitably lightfast for oil colour, might not be lightfast in watercolour. Our ratings utilize a combination of historical data, accelerated testing and data from pigment manufacturers to establish one of the toughest standards among artists’ colour makers today.
Opacity Rating - Transparency and Opacity: Each of our colours has been provided a designation indicating relative degrees of transparency to opacity. Please consider these as a guideline because any thin film application, while not necessarily transparent, can be interpreted by the view as such.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
