218 Transparent Orange (previously Translucent) is a brilliant orange-red, newly developed from an organic lightfast pigment called Pyrrol. It is a single pigment orange and higher chroma than any orange you would mix on the palette. The intensive reddish character is ideal for mixtures of very light red tones and for creating red on red highlights when a pink highlight is not desired. Try mixing with a phthalo green soft for neutral grey tones.
