Burnt ocher artist color with high pigment content, pure linseed oil and without solvents. The consistency is like butter at room temperature, and for many artists the paint can be used directly from the tube without the addition of paint.
Burnt ocher is a lightfast colour that can be used in any technique. It dries (hardens) better a raw ocher and covers better. Burnt Ocher(PR101) Fe2O3 is a stable clay soil pigment consisting mostly of iron oxide (rust). Burning ocher harmonizes the pigment, causes it to change color hue, and burns impurities away.
There are large deposits of natural ocher in the world. Ocher and thus also burnt ocher from yellow to orange, to both red and brown, has been used in painting and art making for a long time. It has been used in different cultures and civilizations on several continents, which did not necessarily influence each other many thousands of years ago.
Since ocher was often at hand and was perfect for art, it is also believed to be the oldest pigment used by humans. With 100% certainty, it has been used by humans 300,000 years ago.
This oil paint can and must be mixed with oil paints from other manufacturers. The same goes for paint. Since this is such a chemically pure and simple product without mysterious fillers, it must also be mixed with your own favorite paint whether it is pond and linseed oil, stand oil, black oil with litharge, Liquin ™, Oil gel ™ Maroger, lavender spike oil etc. For good control over consistency and detail work, we recommend our own paint. If you use solvents to clean brushes outdoors or in a ventilated room, Gamsol ™, turpentine, Terpenoid ™ Alcohol and ethanol, etc can be used. If, on the other hand, you do not like solvents, you can use special cleansing soap or liquid brown soap for the same purpose.
Degree of lightfastness
Burnt ocher is not toxic, but must not be eaten or otherwise ingested. The product has not been allergy-tested, but if you only use it for its intended purpose – to paint with a brush and palette knife – there is no immediate health risk.
