What have you painted today? Featuring Fireworks Red!

Fireworks Red!

Colors are like children, you love them all, and each are unique and different with special qualities that make them who they are.  And you love each of them for who they are. One or two colors stand out as leaders of the pack just as children do on a playground and Fireworks Red is one of those stand out leaders!

We love Fireworks Red and everything about it makes it wonderful!  Take a look and see how Fireworks Red can transform a piece into something with energy, excitement and focus.
