Our extrafine single pigment watercolor Raw Umber Earth is prepared with pure Raw Umber Earth pigment, a natural earth, whose name is derived from the Latin “umbra”, which means shadow. It has been historically used to render shadows. Not only iron oxides are in it, but also manganese oxides, which move its color towards the browns. It’s the cooler version of Burnt Umber Earth.

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

Raw Umber Earth 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.
