Enkaustikos Encaustic Hot Stick Phthalo Blue Red Shade

In stock




  • Phthalo Blue Red Shade is a single pigment paint. All Phthalo pigments have an extremely high tinting strength. In mass tone they are extremely dark in value, sometimes overlooked on the shelf since they appear black. They are also highly transparent in nature, so are an excellent choice for extending with wax medium for glazing techniques. A modern pigment, when used for mixing other colours, only a small amount is needed. Phthalo Blue Red Shade is a good choice for mixing purples, especially when mixed with Alizarin Crimson or Quinacridone Red.
