Transparent orange watercolor paints are either staining or non-staining. In addition, there are semi-opaque and opaque orange watercolors that can be diluted with water to near transparency.
Transparent Non-Staining Orange Watercolor Paints
Transparent Orange contains PO107-Pigment Orange 107 pigment. This pigment developed by Winsor Newton is a bright, warm orange.
TRANSPARENT PYRROL ORANGE
Transparent Pyrrol Orange contains PO71-Pyrrole Orange pigment. It’s a dark reddish-orange color that produces cleaner mixtures than cadmium-based colors.
Semi-Opaque Staining Orange Watercolor Paints
Winsor Orange contains PO62-Benzimidazolone Orange pigment. It is a staining, yellowish-orange color that loses its intensity as it dries.
WINSOR ORANGE (RED SHADE)
Winsor Orange (Red Shade) contains PO73-Transparent Pyrrole Orange pigment. It is a deeper, more intense orange color than Winsor Orange or Transparent Pyrrol Orange.
Opaque Orange Watercolor Paints
Cadmium Orange contains PY35-Cadmium Yellow and PR108-Cadmium Red pigments. All cadmium paints are extremely toxic if inhaled and slightly toxic if ingested.
Cadmium-Free Orange is a non-toxic alternative to Cadmium Orange which is highly toxic. It can be thinned with water to be almost transparent.
