Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Cadmium Orange
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Cadmium Orange is an opaque orange pigment color with high tinting strength and good covering abilities. The pigment is mixed with linseed/safflower oil and is a permanent color with excellent lightfastness. Cadmium pigments were discovered in the 1820s as a by-product to zinc production.
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.
Pigment Color Code: PO20 / PR108
