Great product. Worked great.
All angelus brand products are great I have yet to use some of my colors but I already have projects in mind for them.
What a Maroon!!! (Finally, a TRUE maroon)
True maroon is difficult to blend in a paint color, since it's neither as red nor as bright as the popular concept of that hue which is actually closer to oxblood. The Angelus edition I believe nails it, with a rich darkish brown that's just a touch off burgundy...another frequently shade-off blend. I have the Angelus burgundy also, and it's browner and more organic than the pop-edition color. I have paired the Angelus maroon very pleasingly with their Autumn Red, Brick and Burgundy paints, with accents of the English Tan, and am going to have to go back and do a hue-hunt to see if there is an Oxblood... Though, I can't imagine not buying it if I saw it, since I recently bought nearly $200-worth of paints from AD and another affiliated vendor and thought I'd done a pretty clean sweep! I normally use Daniel Smith and Golden acrylics, with specialty paints from Pebeo, but DS seems to be phasing out their acrylics. These suit my purpose better for painting details and small areas, and I'm so far very happy with my investment!
