Natural Earth Paint

Natural Earth - Burnt Umber Pigment



How to Use This Pigment to Create Oil Paint

1. Scoop a pile of pigment onto a glass palette.

2. Create a small hole at the top of the pile, like a volcano.

3. Add about 30% by volume of walnut or linseed oil.  All natural pigments absorb liquid differently and in different amounts. Just add drops of oil and mix until a thick paste forms - you don't want it too thin!

4. Mix with palette knife or glass muller.

5. Thin paints and clean brushes with Eco-Solve, a 100% soybean based solvent.

6. Optional -  Varnish final painting withNatural Varnish.
