Winsor and Newton has been making paint for artists for the past 180 years. Each color is made to have stable color. The company makes sure that the quality control process keeps the paint ready to be what artists need and want. All their paint becomes touch dry within two to twelve days.
Vermillion hues by W&N has been discontinued, so this is the chance to get some of the last made. The color itself is also called Cinnabar. The paint is very toxic, as it is made from mercury and sulpher. The color is good to use as an undertone with a lighter red used as a glaze.
The paint can be mixed with egg yolk to decorate manuscripts. The paint, though toxic, is a good choice for mixing for multiple uses.
