With more than 170 years of experience in manufacturing the very best supplies for artists, Winsor & Newton is known for using only top-quality materials and pigments to produce bright, clear colors that are true to life. Painters can also be assured that a Winsor & Newton Product will be reliable in its hue and apply smoothly, as the company finely grinds the pigments in its oil paints.
Winsor and Newton's Permanent Alizarin Crimson color was first introduced in 1994 as a vivid red color with a blue undertone. Though this color is highly transparent, it is also highly permanent. However, this oil color, like all Winsor and Newton Artists' oil colors, will remain reworkable for two to as much as twelve days, as the wet and soft paint will become dry to the touch.
This pigment comes in a 4-ounce resealable metal tube.
