Carmine

Not only is Carmine redder than Alizarin Crimson, but it also has a superior permanence rating whilst still maintaining equal staining capacity.

Carmine is a rich and intense red, a staining pigment, that can be diluted to produce more subtle tones, or used more concentrated to retain its luminosity in dark passages.

Carmine is the darkest of all the reds. When mixed with its complementary colour, Phthalo Green, it will allow you to create clear neutrals.
