Green Umber, blended enhanced earth pigment
As a rule, most natural green earth pigments are very beautiful to behold in the dry state, but prove to be impractical in application, because green earths are very weak pigments. We set out to create a green earth that is natural, but still practical. We blended some umbers and enhanced the pigment with a dash of chrome oxide green. This combination yielded a dry pigment with a greenish hue, that explodes into a deep rich forest green, when suspended in binders. Completely lightfast, strong tinting strength and great coverage. In watercolor, the pigment granulates into its constituents to create a rich green veil. Suitable for a mediums including fresco.
