Natural red iron oxides are semi-opaque, absolutely permanent and have excellent covering power. They are strong absorbers of ultraviolet light. The best bluish shades are called Indian red; the yellowish shades, light red, English red, and Venetian red. Formerly there was much confusion in the nomenclature of the red oxides; the terms given here are those specified in the ASTM standard.
Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, at top, mixed with an equal amount of water and brushed out toward the bottom. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the watercolor paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
