French Indian Red, Genuine Earth
French Indian Red- Deep natural red earth, French Indian Red offers a wide range of mixing capacity as a warm reddish brown with cool maroon undertone and tints.
Earthier and more nuanced in mixing than our regular Indian Red, the new French Indian Red offers more control in building flesh tones to provide delicate cooling and shading of a warmer mixture.
Our French Indian Red would be a great choice to create much softer edges than the cooler, brighter synthetic versions of this pigment, enabling a more believable representation of fabric and flowers or distant objects.
Shown here is “The String of Pearls,” by William McGregor Paxton, private collection, oil on canvas painted in 1908.
Our French Indian Red is milled with the finest alkali refined Linseed Oil in limited quantities for a naturally drying durable paint film. 800-932-9375
