The best of pigments may be ruined by their injudicious use, and obtain a character for fugacity which they in no way deserve.
It is so serviceable a pigment for so many purposes, especially in admixture, that its sin of fugacity is overlooked.
There is no need for this cant cry of fugacity, which casts such a blight on modern art.
As there are different degrees both of permanence and fugacity, so are there different degrees of semi-stability.
Will they not rather spread over the picture the Upas-tree of fugacity, and kill it as they die themselves!
fugacity fu·gac·i·ty (fyōō-gās'ĭ-tē)
A measure of the tendency of a substance, often a fluid, to move from one phase to another or from one site to another.
