During this ebook the authors return to fundamentals to explain the structural changes among dyes and pigments, their mechanisms of motion, houses and purposes. They set the scene by way of explaining the explanations at the back of those variations and convey how dyes are predominately natural compounds that dissolve or react with substrates, while pigments are (predominantly) finely flooring inorganic elements which are insoluble and as a result have a unique mode of coloring.
