Artisan Red Premium is the fourth Takuminuri color. It was created with artisan coloring paint technology to extend the range of how the world views red, one of the colors symbolizing Mazda. This new color for 2023 represents the culmination of the Takuminuri evolution to mark the 10th year since the first color Soul Red Crystal Premium was released.

Composition of Artisan Red Premium

Carefully crafted, Artisan Red Premium consists of three layers: a clear layer, translucent paint layer, and a reflective/absorptive layer. The translucent layer includes a high-chroma pigment that people perceive to be the reddest of reds. The reflective/absorptive layer applies a technology that more smoothly aligns aluminum flakes at regular intervals, which was also leveraged for the third Takuminuri color Rhodium White Premium.
