Welcome to dickblick
Caran d’Ache Pastel Cubes have a soft, powdery texture that allows for generous shading. The 3-1/4” x 1/4" shape is easy to handle and the colors are very lightfast.
Color Swatches created using heavy to light application and were applied on 100 lb (163 gsm) drawing paper material.
This Naphthol Red is an intense scarlet red pigment that is heavily staining. It has an average drying time. It is semi-transparent and has relatively poor covering power.
This Naphthol Red has been rated as having excellent lightfastness under ASTM testing, but other testing methods have demonstrated some tendancy for the color to fade with exposure to strong ultraviolet light. It has been considered a replacement for less lightfast naphthol reds such as PR3. Not suitable for exterior use.
Naphthol Reds are not considered toxic. Naphthol Red AS-D may cause eye, skin, or respiratory irritation. Contact with dry pigment should be avoided.
