Perylene Maroon is a mysterious color in that at first glance appears to be a blackish maroon shade. However, you will want to extend this paint with our wax medium or XD wax medium in order to fully realize the allure this paint has. In mass tone it is almost a black, but once extended the deep transparent wine red simply glows. There is a sultry quality to this color that is unlike it®s sister Alizarin Crimson. For an interesting primary palette try mixing with Prussian Blue and Nickel Titanate Yellow, you will be amazed at the beautifully rich and deep colors you can mix with these three and to maintain translucency use Zinc White instead of Titanium.
