Cadmium Orange is a single pigment paint. It is a vibrant orange that is opaque and falls between Cadmium yellow Deep and Cadmium Red Vermillion. As with all Cadmium's, it has a strong tinting strength. Cadmium Orange is an ideal color choice for encaustic printmaking where opacity and density is desired. Due to its dense pigment load, opacity, and tinting capabilities, you will want to add plenty of wax medium to get more mileage and to help the paint flow better.
