Rose Dore Madder Lake is a rich red-orange. It has a deep masstone and is useful in washes, producing light shades that are good for portraits.; Sennelier gathers only the finest organic and inorganic pigments from around the world. These pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a rich satin finish. This paint has a unique buttery texture.
