Pigment Details: Cadmium Sulphoselenide / Colour Index Pigment Red 108 (C.I. PR108)
Cadmium Scarlet Professional Watercolour is prepared using a mixed crystal inorganic pigment, cadmium sulphoselenide (sulphide selenide). The pigment is a solid solution of cadmium selenide in cadmium sulphide; the ratio of which will influence the pigment’s hue as the more cadmium selenide the redder the pigment will be.
The pigment has excellent heat stability, a high degree of light fastness and chemical resistance, making it ideal for use in A J Ludlow’s Professional watercolour range. It's a bright and clean orange-shade red and can be used on the artist’s pallet as a warm primary red and as an alternative hue to genuine vermilion (C.I. PR106). As with all cadmium pigments this colour is opaque in heavier layers.
Although containing cadmium, this metal’s bioavailabilty in the pigment used in our watercolour is very low and so the pigment is considered safe for use in our Professional watercolour range.
