Generally speaking, colourants are usually either dyes or pigments. The difference between the two classes is that dyes are soluble, organic compounds, which are most commonly applied to textiles. Pigments, on the other hand, are insoluble compounds and can be used in paint, ink, ceramic and plastics.
