I did a test. I tested this against Sennilier's Carmine. Because they are both honey based. I have tried it against another handmade paint. And guess what? HANDS down the best CARMINE ever. Seriously. Better than M.Graham as well. I love it so much I got a second one in case it is never made again. That is how much I love this color.
I use this ALL the time!! It is such a dreamy color and really makes a beautiful purple and gorgeous orange when paired with cerulean and also Indian yellow! One of my favorite pinks!!!
