Yet another improvement on a classic, for me Alizarin Crimson is one of the most useful colours, I thought it's richness and transparency were unbeatable, they were until now. The slippyness of Alizarin is gone replaced by this wonderful stiff consistency, from the moment you squeeze the tube you know this is something special.
Like all quinacridone pigments it is highly permanent, it is cool in masstone but reveals warm rose undertones in glazing where it is best used.
Langridge's description - "Quinacridone Crimson was developed as a replacement to Alizarin Crimson and is therefore on the violet or blueish side of red rather than orange side. This is achieved by the deep dusty crimson of Perylene in combination with the clear magenta reds of Quinacridone."
