Raw umber


Umber is a earth color whose content of iron and manganese compounds gives a characteristic brownish color, which varies from light linen gray to more greenish-brown tones, depending on the clay from which it is extracted. The pigment has been used since ancient times. There are natural deposits of the pigment in i.a. Italy and Germany and in Cyprus. The name "umbra" comes from Latin and means shadow. The name refers to its use in the art of painting, where the pigment was largely used to come in other colors when they were to be in shadow in the painting.

The pigment is light, water, - oil, - and calcareous.
