Since we first launched our milk paint line, Tricycle (our red) was clearly red before it was even mixed with water. The color of the pigment was visible dry…
While this red pigment made a perfect shade of rich, yummy red, the powder was messy to work with and it was difficult to mix with water. If you’ve spilled or mixed Tricycle, you know just what I’m talking about!
After extensive testing, we have switched the red pigment used in Tricycle. This new pigment has a paler appearance when it’s dry, but it is much easier to work with and mix.
It looks a bit more like Arabesque at first glance…
…but, like our blues, when the water is added, the pigment wakes up!
And this pigment wakes up quickly and loves the water, so it’s very easy to mix.
Once mixed, it’s the same rich, yummy red that Tricycle has always been.
What project will you use Tricycle on next?
