Sichuan Opera  川剧  (PR-102)

    A semi-transparent earth pigment pushed to its limit. Very staunch in masstone, this is a lightish red earth that thins into an impressive flash of earthen fire.  Named after southwestern Chinese opera which employs red-ochre painted masks as dramatic devices while highly trained vocalists display an irrepressible and ear-crushing tonal range that demands respect.

Lightfastness: I ; Semi-transparent
Bound in alkali refined linseed oil to ensure firey warmth.
