Stoneground Paint Co. Mars Red Oxblood Gouache
Stoneground Gouache is a water-based media that dries to an opaque, matte finish. Mars Red Oxblood is a dull maroon-violet that is darker and more violet in its undertone than India Red.
Artist Notes: Stoneground Mars Red Oxblood Gouache is a deep, moody hue that is versatile in landscapes, botanicals, and wildlife painting.
Paint Maker’s Notes: Developed at the end of the 18th century in response to depleted natural pigment deposits, synthetic iron oxides were given the name ‘Mars’ after the Roman god of war and our planetary neighbour which has almost double the amount of iron oxide in its outer layers than our own.

About Stoneground’s LUCKY 13 Colors:
Introducing Stoneground’s New LUCKY 13 Gouache Collection! This is our favorite launch to date. Thirteen jewel-inspired hues that are versatile, vibrant, and absolutely perfect for capturing late summer and autumn landscapes.
This release includes four new single pigment hues: Mars Yellow, Mars Red Light, and Mars Red Oxblood, and Nickel Titanium Yellow. Nine additional hues were also developed to supplement the original gouache collection. Sunflower, Clementine, Strawberry Fields, Beetroot Purple, Hellebore Purple, Peacock Blue, Maritime Pine, Green Gold, and Forest Floor.
Combine the new yellows (Nickel Titanium Yellow, Sunflower and Mars Yellow) with the newest purples (Beetroot and Hellebore) to create beautiful browns for fall foliage and dried leaves. Use Clementine for vibrant hits of orange in autumn botanicals, or combine it with Nickel Titanium Yellow for the perfect sunset glow in landscape paintings.
Stoneground Paint Co. creates their handmade gouache by combining the world’s finest pigments as well as premium French chalk with a binder made from water, Gum Arabic, and honey. Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
