Linseed Oil Paint Burnt Umber Brown

The linseed oil paint Burnt Umber Brown is immediately ready to paint. 

Burnt Umber Brown is the darkest of  our brown tones. It is a very powerful brown shade with a lot of depth. Burnt Umber Brown belongs to the group of ochre tones. The chemically bound water is removed by heating, which creates a dark and rather reddish colour. Burnt Umber Brown is an earth colour. Earth colours have the property that they never harden completely and always remain elastic. Especially at high temperatures caused by solar radiation, the paint follow the strong movements of the wood.  Umber pigments consists of limonite, carbon and about 15% black manganese dioxide. Manganese dioxide has a catalyzing effect and causes the linseed oil paint to dry faster. Burnt Umber Brown has a high opacity and is lightfast.
