The Colour of the day

This is a new feature to the blog which I will pick a colour of paint from a manufacturer and give my opinion on the quality of the paint and it's uses.

So Todays colour of the day is Vallejo Vermillion


This is a very vibrant red and a good highlight for many dark reds. I use it lots on Napoleonics such as the British Red coat. This usually acts as a first highlight for scarlet reds or a second highlight for a more subtle darker red.


As with most Vallejo colours this exceptional paint quality. Good consistancy and flow. Easily blended too when watered down slightly.

Use with:

Highlight over Vermillion with Vallejo Orange red for brighter reds or Highlight a darker red such as Americana Napa red.
