Just to let everyone know that I needed more of the "Admiralty Paints" Red Ochre # AP9116W and it was only one bottle and I needed it very quickly. So, for the time being, I found what I think is about a near perfect (color match) as I can find. I was using this color for the Bulwarks and the Canon Port Lids.

The brand is Anita's Acrylic Craft Paint #11025 Rust Red. After painting some Gun Port lids, I honestly could not tell any difference in the shade of color after they were dry from the originals. Purchased from Hobby Lobby.

I see that Hobby-Lobby carries the Winsor & Newton Artists' Watercolor Paint. However, of all the colors they mention, I do not see a Red Ocre in the list. The only think listed is a Dark Indian red. But the main fact is that at least if you have a hobby-lobby near you, they have some colors to choose from. thanks for mentioning this. I will have to try out this brand. The folk art paint is really thick and has to be watered down alot.

So a little further investigating going to the Winsor Newton website, these are the RED colors they have listed by name. I am not sure which one would qualify for Red Occre

Cadmium Scarlet

Cadmium Red
Cadmium Red Deep
Winsor Red
Quinacridone Red
Winsor Red Deep

Permanent Carmine

Look for Acrylic paints "Winsor & Newton Gallaria" or "Winsor & Newton Proffesional" not water colors

Hummmm......very interesting. This link is for the WORLD site and not the USA site. I see NOW the red Ocre listed !!!! Nice. I wonder why the USA site does not carry the Red Ocre. that is strange.....
However, thank you travoski for that link - it makes perfect sense now.

I have tried "Red Cardinal" which seems decent enough to me.
