I went shopping yesterday and one of my favorite places to stop is Hobby Lobby. We don't have any other art stores around here. Well I was watching one of Jason Morgan's videos on art supplies the other day and he mentioned the colors he used for tigers, which happens to be my current project, and it was Cadmium Orange Deep, so I figure I'd get some.
Well the price for a little tube of Windsor & Newton Cadmium Orange Deep was $26. I was floored, then I noticed all the colors that started with "Cadmium" were so much more expensive than the other colors, no matter which brand. Luckily I had a 40% off coupon so it was only $15 -- but still wow. So I figured when I got home I would check online for a less expensive way to get Cadmium colors....wow...they were just as expensive online.
What is it about the Cadmium colors that make them so expensive?
