Cadmium Maroon is a single pigment paint. It is a very opaque and dense paint that has a vibrant burgundy hue. As with all Cadmiums, it has a strong tinting strength. Cadmium Maroon has quickly become a favorite for use in encaustic printmaking. Due to its dense pigment load, opacity, and tinting capabilities, you will want to add plenty of wax medium to get more mileage and to help the paint flow better. Cadmium Maroon is featured in our Rich Tones Hot Sticks® Set.
