Our extrafine single pigment watercolor Burnt Umber Earth is prepared with pure mineral Burnt Umber pigment. This is a natural earth which has shades in the hues of brown: they can be more or less warm, according to their grade of calcination (the one we chose here has a quite warm tone). Their color comes from a mixture of iron and manganese oxides. They’re very common all over the world, but the best varieties, like the one we chose to prepare this watercolor, come from Cyprus. Like all the earths it’s used since millennia by humankind, till present times. After the Reinassance it was used a lot to create shadows or backgrounds in paintings.

Burnt Umber Earth watercolor by Nila Colori, prepared with this pure pigment, is extremely lightfastsemi-opaque and has a moderate tinting strength.

Burnt Umber pigment is milled with just the right amount of a mixture of Kordofan gum arabic (binder) and vegetable glycerin (humectant and plasticyzer). These are the ingredients which are historically the main characters in the production of the watercolors and which give the best results regarding ease and pleasantness of painting. We don’t add any filler or any other organic compound, which might alter the color over time.
