A Pigment is a type of resource which appears as a small tetrahedron (three-sided pyramid) dropped by specific enemies. Pigments are required for researching Polychrome Colors for the interior of a Clan Dojo.
Each Polychrome Color has an associated enemy, and will only drop if a color is being researched. The frequency of pigment drops and the number of pigments in each drop varies per color from 1 to 10.
Polychrome Color research can be started (and pigments can be turned in) at a Clan Dojo's Tenno Research Lab, at a separate terminal by the wall on the right. Each project will have a base cost of 10,00010,000 and 5 to 550 pigments. These costs are increased by the Clan Tier Multiplier.
Once fully funded, the research for a color takes 36 hours. Only one color may be researched at a time, regardless of the number of Tenno Labs that are present in the Dojo. Research on one color may be paused to start research on another, but any pigment in clan member inventories that has not been donated to the research project will be deleted.

INFO: This is NOT a list of all drop locations or all farming methods, it is a list with the most effective, fastest and easiest way(s) for gathering each individual pigment. IF there is only or two ways to get this pigments it is mentioned.
Only way to obtain pigments of this color is doing Invasions against the Corpus until you got the Zanuka Hunter Assassin Death Mark and killing the Zanuka Hunter when he tries to assasinate you OR summon the Zanuka Hunter by using its Beacon purchased from Baro Ki'Teer.
Since Phorid can only be found when an Invasion takes over the Assassination mission of a Planet but due to the 100% chance that he will drop the pigment, you can easily do 10 Invasion Assassination runs against him. A fast way to kill him is Mesa with Peacemaker.
[Alternative]V Prime, Venus – Survival against the Corpus. Stay for at least 10 minutes, recommended extraction time around 25-35 minutes.
This MAY be much more efficient if done by a full four man squad, depending on boosters, resource boosting warframes (Nekros, Hydroid etc) and of course luck. But it takes way more time compared with "Larissa, Neptune"
Spawns only during night time and always in pairs of two. It is recommended to farm them while fighting against an Eidolon Teralyst/Gantulyst/Hydrolyst because of their behavior try to defend the Eidolon, resulting more Vomvalyst.
Can be found spreaded around in groups of two during Day Time. They can fly around with their Dargyn or patrolling around them on the ground. While doing bounties Dargyn pilots spawn frequently during the drone escorts.
