Transparent Red Oxide - 40ml


An Iron Oxide processed to such a small pigment particle size that it shows almost lake-like characteristics. Excellent tint power which produces wonderful results in mixes with yellows and in making flesh tints .

It can also be used to give gravity to mid-red tones.

Makes fantastic rich, warm blacks and dark tones when mixed with greens, it can hold its own against something like a permanent green. It is a very functional and useful colour.

Personally I find it extremely useful when mixed with Ultramarine blue to create warm/cool greys depending on the balance of the colours.

A workhorse on the palette - lots of functionality.

Perfect consistency

I confess I sometimes find Michael Harding's colours a bit too runny for my liking. But there are some colours made by him that are arguably the best produced nowadays as an oil paint. I think this transparent red oxide is such a colour, as well as his ultramarine, magenta, permanent orange, naples yellow light etc. A gorgeous rusty warm shade with the perfect balance between pigment and oil.
