Cadmium Red Light (15ml Watercolors)


Orange-Red, Opaque

Cadmium Red Light, an orange-red will give bright oranges when mixed with Cadmium Yellow Light and dark, greyed violets with Cerulean Blue. Being opaque it covers well but has sufficient strength to give reasonably clear washes. It is light fast, unlike Vermilion (an alternative orange-red) which can turn black on exposure.

Absolutely lightfast. Rated ASTM 1 as a watercolor, oil paint, acrylic or gouache. Possesses an excellent range of qualities. An outstanding pigment well worth any additional cost.

  • Pigment Red 108 is a first rate colorant with very desirable qualities. Varying in hue from a bright orange-red to a deeper violet-red. Opaque, with good hiding power, it is nevertheless strong enough to give reasonably transparent washes.
  • It will not bleed into other colours and resists light, heat, Hydrogen Sulphide and alkalis. Non- metallic preservatives.
