This deep, ochre red is a color found in numerous cultures, from Venetian Palaces to Vietnamese temples. Before the 18th century, the only reds available were the very expensive artist’s pigment, red oxides, and ochre reds, which were a reddish brown. Due to the plentiful and readily accessible nature of these red earth pigments, this color was used as a primer for furniture and a basecoat for gilding. It is a wonderful color when used on its own or as a base for other colors, especially when distressing.
