Iron Oxide Minium

NCS 5731-Y78R

Iron Oxide Minium is a lovely, understated red color that is also an excellent base for painting on metal surfaces.


The fish scale-like structure of the Spanish pigment, hematite in combination with Purified Linseed Oil, a natural rust inhibitor, creates an incredible protective coating for metal applications.


Use Iron Oxide Minium as a "primer" coat before you paint with your desired Ottosson Linseed Oil Paint color or use as is.

Mixed with White Titanium Zinc, some lovely lighter colors can be created.
