The LED Lamp Miniature Painters Have Been Waiting For!

At Redgrass, we thrive on challenges and innovation. When we embarked on designing a lamp for miniature painting, we had a clear vision: no existing desk lamp was good enough for our hobby. We knew we had to innovate for the benefit of all miniature painters.

The LED Lamp Miniature Painters Have Been Waiting For! : Flexible Lighting

The R9 Desk Lamp has two independently rotating bars with custom built LEDS. For an art style that is often about the very small, being able to focus your lighting on the precise spot where you are painting can be difficult without causing shadows. The design’s ingenuity in having two separate bars means you can direct the light to precisely where you need it, and avoid heavy shadows at the same time – perfect for the needs of miniature painting and other creative hobbies!

:Color Accuracy

At the heart of the R9’s appeal is its groundbreaking Redgrass R9 Color Perfect technology, which challenges traditional color rendering norms. With an extended Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 98.5+ and an exceptional R9 value, the lamp excels in displaying true-to-life colors, especially critical reds, yellows, and skin tones.

This capability is crucial for miniature painters who rely on precise color differentiation to bring their intricate designs to life. The lamp’s LED technology, coupled with specific phosphor coatings, ensures the full spectrum of natural daylight is mimicked, enhancing the color accuracy of every project.

Forget everything you know about color rendering.

Standard CRI analyzes only 8 colors out of 15. Excluding key colors such as red, yellow and skin tones in the calculation. 

Our Advanced LEDs boast a score of 97+ on the Rg test, encompassing the full color spectrum. This feature is unparalleled and exclusive to our product.

The R9 Desk Lamp stands alone in its ability to provide perfect color rendition, making it ideal for painting miniatures with acrylics or any other type of paint.
