Red Ochre is a natural earth pigment that has been used for centuries by artists and civilizations around the world. It is composed of iron oxide, giving it a reddish-brown color. The name "ochre" comes from the Greek word "ochros," which means pale yellow.

It is brownish-red in color. The pigment is known for its excellent lightfastness and stability, meaning it does not easily fade or change over time when exposed to light.

History:
Red Ochre has been used for various purposes throughout history. It was commonly used in cave paintings by early humans as one of the earliest forms of artistic expression. It was also used in traditional painting techniques, such as frescoes, as well as for dyeing fabrics and creating body paints.

In contemporary art, Red Ochre is still used by artists for its warm and earthy tones. It can be mixed with other pigments to create a wide range of colors and is often favored for its natural and organic feel. 

Light Fastness: 8/8
