Mars Venetian Red is a deep, dense, opaque earth red with more of burgundy hue. Like all Mars pigments, they cool off easily with the addition of white. Mars Venetian Red is an excellent addition to the historical paint palette and also ideal for printmaking. 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.
