Pozzuoli red is a warm, red earth, again another cracker for the portrait painter or warm landscape shadows.
"Pozzuoli Red is a semi-transparent deep orange red earth with warm undertones, medium grained with good tinting strength and brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Our red earth comes from quarries in Northern Italy.
Red iron oxide or ferric oxide is the principle coloring agent in Pozzuoli Red. This colour is based on the natural mineral hematite associated with varying proportions of other mineral such as clay, chalk and silica."
