List of Lime fast pigments for Fresco

fresco painting can only be done with certain colors. Due to the extreme alkaline nature of the binder, only certain pigments are stable enough to be used in this media. Cadmium colors should only be used on indoor frescoes.

This is not a complete list and other colors may be suitable. All colors should be tested for stability in your environment before selecting them for use.
