Cadmium red medium acrylic paint is available now in 4.65 oz. sturdy plastic tubes that are easy to use, open, and close. Cadmium red medium, made by Liquitex, is of professional quality, not cracking or clumping inappropriately, and has long-lasting vibrancy. This high viscosity paint with a thick, buttery texture can be watered down with H2O depending on the artist's needs. Cadmium red medium is a step lighter on the saturation scale from pure cadmium red making it slightly less intense of a shade of red. This hue is perfect to enliven skin tones, mix deep pink and orange sunset colors, or for when a "fire engine red" is needed.
