Ok, from now on will sign my prints as following: Loris "The Wizard"

I don't have any particular reasons in selecting that pigment. I was
looking for a color very close to process cyan which is preferably
single pigment, transparent, which doesn't stain heavily. My actual
choice from the catalog was another color (the single pigment PB 15:3)
but unfortunately that color wasn't in stock, so I purchased the closest
color to my original choice.

Still, I

IIRC, the white in that mix is pretty opaque (visually and also opaque
to UV). Maybe this changes the color's behaviour very dramatically.

"Rookie chance" they say in Turkish ("acemi sansi").

Thanks, a very sound suggestion. ITOH, my other colors are process
magenta "Schmincke Magenta #352, PV 42 Quinacridone Violet" and process
yellow "Schmincke Pure Yellow #216, PY 154 Benzimidazolone". So all the
colors I chose are basic colors in color-theory. Theorically they should
work well together. We'll see.

For being lucky right? Thanks :)
