Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Alizarin Crimson
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Alizarin Crimson is a synthetic lake pigment from the Madder plant mixed with linseed oil and is a transparent color with poor lightfastness. Alizarin Crimson was the first natural dye to be synthesised in 1868. It is a deep transparent red with a blueish undertone.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
