This is Indian Yellow with the addition of an Iron Oxide pigment, this same iron based pigment has an incredibly small particle which makes also useful as a wood dye. The Iron Oxide gives a very rich, beautiful, gingery red shade to the blend, as well as greatly accelerating the curing speed, to the point that this paint can be used as a curing agent in mixes with others. Fabulous when mixed with Magenta, Ultramarine Blue and other vivid colours.
