Burnt Umber Dark Individual Watercolor

A natural earth pigment that is lightfast and opaque with a slight texture.

Umbers are brown or reddish-brown natural earth colors, and this pigment consists of iron oxide and manganese oxide, which are called raw umber in their natural form. When the pigment is heated, the color becomes darker and richer, transforming it into Burnt Umber.
