Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Rose Madder Genuine
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Rose Madder Genuine is a transparent rose pigment that is only made by Winsor & Newton. It is mixed with safflower oil and is a permanent color with very good lightfastness. George Field, acclaimed colorist of the 19th c, created a laboratory in which to create the best quality Rose Madder. Made from the Madder Plant found in Asia and Southern Europe, Rose Madder is an extremely valuable pigment. Winsor & Newton still use Field's methods to make the pigment.
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: NR9
