The Cherry mix always contains the most vibrant transparent and opaque versions of Red that Bob can find - reds that are truly reminiscent of the cherries back in Door County (in Wisconsin) during the autumn.
A deep, rich red, often referred to as a "Lipstick Red", is apparently extremely difficult to manufacture, particularly in the opaque version. More often than not, it's either a little too orange or a little too brown, or a little too variable. Bob strives to use the best Reds available, though.
Note: Lighted Bases sold separately, and are available here
