Handmade Cadmium Red Medium is a long time favourite of professional artists. A beautifully intense and rich colour. Cadmium paints and pigments are harder and harder to find. Most commercial paint manufacturers are moving away from them and replacing them with mixed inferior colours that try to look like the same hue because of cost.

As a professional artist I have tried to source the best paints I could find. There was always something lacking. Not too long ago artists made the paints they used. Having a background in colour science I thought making my own paint would be relatively easy.... The hard part, that took me 3 years to create and the secret to any professional paint is the binder. That is the closely guarded secret the commercial manufactures use to define their paints. It is what makes them unique.
The pigments are sourced from all over the world and are the best artist grade pigments available. My watercolour paints are packed with these pigments.
After years of trial and error I believe I have made the finest watercolor paint available. The pans are poured a little at a time over several weeks. They are made to re wet easily and with very intense colours. Often people purchase tubes because they like the intensity of the colour out of the tube. If that is the case you will love the intensity of these paints. Just a damp brush is all you need to start painting. Tube paints require fillers and extenders to keep them consistent in density and body. All of these extras will evaporate leaving you with less paint than you would get in a dried pan.
I am so confident that you will love these paints, If you are not 100% happy - send the paints back and I will refund your entire order!
