Enviro Brown Iron Oxide DANIEL SMITH Awc 15ml
DANIEL SMITH Enviro-Friendly Watercolours-the colours aren't green, but the process is! To make these paints, we use pigments from the earth's crust, obtained through a process known as Iron Oxide Recovery (IOR). This method removes coloured iron oxides that pollute mine water, cleaning the water so it can re-enter a receiving stream-and resulting in a cleaner natural environment. The recovered iron oxide is thoroughly washed, then used to create a trio of rich colours ranging in tone from a warm golden yellow to a deep red earth to a beautiful saturated dark brown with a bluish undertone.
At full strength this deep umber is useful for warm shadows and dark values. Mixed with water, a brilliant granulating wash displays warm cinnamon tones with a darker pattern of granulation. Enviro-Friendly pigments are reclaimed and refined, giving you an earth-friendly option without sacrificing colour quality.
