Enviro Red Iron Oxide DANIEL SMITH Awc 15ml


This versatile red-brown is deep brick at full strength. In lighter washes a warm and transparent earthy rose is revealed. A perfect brown-pink for portraiture – it’s the natural looking red on cheeks and lips. DANIEL SMITH Enviro-Friendly Watercolours-the colours aren’t green, but the process is!

To make these paints, we use pigments from the earth’s crust, obtained through a process known as Iron Oxide Recovery (IOR). This method removes coloured iron oxides that pollute mine water, cleaning the water so it can re-enter a receiving stream-and resulting in a cleaner natural environment. The recovered iron oxide is thoroughly washed, then used to create a trio of rich colours ranging in tone from a warm golden yellow to a deep red earth to a beautiful saturated dark brown with a bluish undertone.

Enviro-Friendly pigments are reclaimed and refined, giving you an earth-friendly option without sacrificing colour quality.
