Pigment Light Fastness Rating: I Excellent
Pompeii Red is a Natural Iron Oxide that at first glance may look much like a traditional Burnt Sienna, but only in mass one. It is a degree lighter in value as well. Pompeii Red has a definite reddish orange hue that stays warm when tinted. When fully extended into a glaze the orange notes are most prevalent. Semi transparent, yet slight granulation in nature; this is one of our historical colors, we are proud to add to our extensive line of paints.
