Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Burnt Umber
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Burnt Umber is a transparent rich dark brown pigment that is made from natural brown clays found in the earth. The pigment is mixed with linseed/safflower oil and is an extremely permanent color with excellent lightfastness. It was named after Umbria, a region in Italy where it was mined. Burning the raw pigment intensifies its color.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
