Cadmium Red Light is a single pigment paint that is opaque and has a strong tinting strength. This is a classic choice for the traditional color mixing palette. Cadmium Red Light holds onto a slight orange note which is great when mixing warm hues, and useful for neutralizing cool colors. 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 Red Light is a featured paint in our Classic Painter’s Choice Hot Cakes® Set and Rich Tone Hot Sticks® Set. Since Cadmium Red Light is a common choice for painting portraiture it is also included in the Lora Murphy Portrait Set.
