This Iron Oxide has been used as a wood dye and I realized that its capacity to enrich the grain of hardwood made it a wonderful candidate for paint making.
It has great warmth with gingery undertones quite different to those seen in the Indian Yellows.
Because the pigment particles are very small, it could almost be mistaken for a Lake.
It has huge Tint Power which pulls whites and other yellows into a golden, rich Titianesque zone of warm low tones.
Try it with Aureolin and the Earths.
