Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors 150ml Alizarin Crimson
Alizarin Crimson is a cool, slightly bluish red with smoky glaze. 19th century "lake" color made by the fusing a dye on to a substrate. Only Alizarin Crimson is still commonly used by painters today.
Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors are made with the same dedication and pure pigments that go into Gamblin's Artist's Oils. In addition, they use the same process of mixing, milling, filling, and hand labeling. 1980 colors are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). More affordable colors have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began.
With 1980 colors, artists experience colors that are true, without homogenized texture or muddy color mixtures. Gamblin's approach of using both traditional raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience the luscious working properties that they expect from their oil colors.
