*A note on natural red pigments:
While all of the Classic Artist Oil pigments are inspected to meet the highest standards of quality, please keep in mind that many natural red pigments are not lightfast in and of themselves, and are only suitable for use as a full shade because they tend to darken or fade over time if tinted or mixed. There was a time in all paint manufacturers’ not so distant past, when large amounts of mercury and lead were often added to preserve color. Now that we know the dangers of these ingredients, we have removed these hazards from our formulas, and we can only hope that this process has been discontinued in all paint manufacturing. Nevertheless, the large demand of certain shades of red has not lessened, and though they are not entirely lightfast, you can still purchase these shades. We are proud to offer a number of superior, synthetic reds as alternatives in response to the demand for a high quality red pigment. Although not available to earlier painters, these reds allow for many of the sought after characteristics of the natural pigments, while retaining the superior lightfastness required by the professional artist.
