Highly pigmented and finely ground watercolors made by hand in the USA. Extra fine watercolors produce clean washes even layers and also possess superior lightfastness properties. Artists choose Indian Red for architectural renderings old brick and other subjects where a flat (matte) granular surface is desired. The opacity and density intrinsic to Indian Red make this grayed earth brown a useful asset. One coat of this low-intensity pigment covers even a highly saturated passage.
