Experience the vibrant, rich red hue of Alizarin Crimson, a synthetic lake pigment derived from the organic dye alizarin found in the madder plant. Named after the ancient plant-based dye, this pigment offers a unique blend of warmth and depth, biased slightly more towards purple than orange on the color wheel. With its origins dating back to ancient civilizations in central Asia and Egypt, Alizarin Crimson has been prized for its beauty and versatility in artistic expressions.

This extraordinary pigment has undergone a fascinating transformation, from its natural roots to its modern, synthetic form. The roots of the Rubia tinctorum plant contain the coloring substances that are converted to madder lakes, which have been employed in various forms of art, including textiles, paintings, and other decorative items. The synthetic version of Alizarin Crimson, first developed in the late 19th century, has become a staple in modern art supplies, offering unparalleled richness and depth to artistic creations.

As a synthetic lake pigment, Alizarin Crimson is created by precipitating the dye alizarin onto an aluminum substrate, resulting in a beautiful, transparent red pigment. This exceptional pigment is renowned for its unique characteristics, including its high oil absorption rate, fine particle size, and sensitivity to light. Despite its impermanence, Alizarin Crimson continues to captivate artists and artisans with its extraordinary beauty and expressive possibilities.

Whether you're a professional artist, a student, or a hobbyist, Alizarin Crimson from Rublev Colours offers an unparalleled artistic experience. With its rich, crimson hue and exceptional lightfastness, this pigment is ideal for a wide range of artistic mediums, including oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting.
