Like a vibrant English Red, this rich, warm red Synthetic Iron Oxide tints to strong clean pinks.  Splendidly red and opaque.

Imaged above, right from the tube, is our Mars Red at top left and our Caput Mortuum below it at bottom left. Right from the tube is our Orchid at right from top to bottom and then mixed with to tint both the Mars Red and Caput Mortuum at center.

Mars Colors right from the tube and tinted with Titanium White at bottom, from left to right: Mars Yellow, Mars Red, Mars Violet, and Mars Olive.

Cadmiums, cobalts, chromium and all the Mars colors, from yellow to violet, are the bright new inventions of 19th century chemistry that sparked a color revolution in painting, well into the 20th and the modern age. Because we carefully make our paint in small batches and hand-fill our tubes and cans, the Mars colors we offer are as inspiring as the original colors favored by the Pre-Raphaelite painters through the avant-garde movement of Fauvism….Mars colors with the most vibrant mass tones possible, the richest opacity, and the greatest tinting strength.

Mars Red is milled with the finest alkali refined Linseed Oil in limited quantities for a naturally drying durable paint film.
