If you have ever asked for help finding the perfect Red, you will know the first thing I will ask you is “Blue or Orange based Red?” I thought it was time that I explained just what that means. Above you will see three Reds, Cherry Red, Scarlet and Emotion Red. All three of the Reds are hand dyed using the same amount of dye, the same fabric and dyed on the same day. Can you see the change in tone? Cherry Red has the most Orange tone to it, thus is an Orange based Red. Scarlet is a deeper Red but still, has that warm Orange undertone and is an Orange based Red. Emotion Red has a cool undertone, deeper and richer, Blue based Red.
