    Ash Pink | Matisse Acrylic Paint

    Subtle Elegance in Earthy Pink


    Matisse's Ash Pink unveils a soft, muted, earthy pink born from the harmonious blend of Titanium White and a carefully selected red oxide. This unique concoction mirrors the traditional hue of pink primer, reminiscent of the days when it was crafted from red and white lead in house paintings. With a steadfast permanence, this colour instils confidence in its application, akin to the opaque mid-tone pink primer that adeptly concealed imperfections in the past.


    Versatility Unveiled: Beyond Concealing Mistakes


    Beyond its adeptness at covering errors, Ash Pink diverges in utility from its counterpart, Magenta Light. While Magenta Light excels in lightening vibrant, cool reds, magentas, and violets, Ash Pink finds its forte in elevating earthy reds and violets. It effortlessly forms dusky pinks when paired with Venetian Red, Red Oxide, or Permanent Maroon, evoking the subtle hues found in roses or the clouds during sunset. A dance with Raw Sienna results in golden or salmon tones, while a union with Ultramarine produces exquisite soft blues and blueish mauves. Experimenting with Cobalt Teal reveals the creation of beautiful soft greys, showcasing the unexpected versatility within this unassuming colour.


    Artistic Precision: Painting Lips


    In practical application, Ash Pink emerges as an ideal choice for painting lips. A combination of Mars Violet, Ash Pink, and a touch of Venetian Red, depending on individual nuances, captures the unique spectrum of lip colours. While lipstick experimentation may lead to Matisse Rose Madder or other vibrant hues, the natural essence of lips demands a softer, earthier palette. The richness of the natural world lies in earthy tones, rendering soft, earthy versions paramount in palette choices. Pairing Ash Pink with Mineral Blue and Venetian Red yields lovely mauves, while its addition to Chromium Green Oxide crafts the greenish greys found in the ubiquitous Eucalyptus leaves of the Australian bush. In the world of colour, Ash Pink proves to be a hidden treasure, offering surprises with every stroke.
