5 days - without drier
The drying time depends on temperature, humidity, aeration, and the thickness of the paint coat.
This color is highly valued, and is a transparent version of Venetian red. It has very high transparency and at the same time also has a high color strength. It is ideal for glazes, especially in landscape painting.
The pigment is available since 1950 and is in principle identical to those of conventional iron oxide pigments. A
special manufacturing method called "micronisation", however, makes it possible to produce iron oxides of extremely small particle sizes, giving it excellent glaze characteristics.
