Description
Details Rublev Colour Ercolano Red is a semi-transparent deep orange red with warm undertones, medium grained, high tinting strength and brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Our red earth comes from quarries in Northern Italy.

Red iron oxide or ferric oxide is the principle coloring agent in red earths, such as Ercolano Red. This color is based on the natural mineral hematite associated with varying proportions of other minerals such as clay, chalk and silica. They differ from other ochres in that they do not contain water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is iron oxide not hydrated iron oxide.




Rublev Oil Colour: Ercolano Red
Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, straight from the tube, on the left, and mixed with an equal amount of Titanium white on the right. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
