A warm and intense red-orange, Vermilion is a bold, versatile hue that is useful in everything from florals and still life works, to landscapes, abstracts, and illustration.
Artist Notes: An intense red-orange, Vermilion mixes well with others, and creates particularly stunning orange hues when combined with Hansa Yellow.
Paint Makers Notes: Named for the historic pigment, which also happens to be a toxic combination of mercury and sulfur which darkens over time, Stoneground’s Vermilion gouache is a modern azo-based pigment that is non-toxic and lightfast.
