Burnt Umber Brown of Cyprus Pigment – Ombre de Chypre HG Matte

Shadows of Cyprus: L’ombre de Chypre HG (= umber HG of Cyprus) is an umber that comes from Cyprus. The umber earth probably owes its name to the latin “umbra” (shadow) which was once used to cast down the colors. Cyprus is the largest producer of earths in the Mediterranean basin. Traces of this earth can be found everywhere. They are taken in the form of clay which makes them accessible and cheap pigments.

Use : lime, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine arts, flour painting.
This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic painting, it should be ground finely in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.

Linseed oil : dissolve the powder in a little bit of turpentine before adding it to the linseed oil.
Water-based paint/fatty lime : dilute the pigment in some water to make it liquid before incorporating it into the paint.
Lime powder/cement/plaster : directly incorporate the pigment (up to 10% based on the weight of the binder), then mix in order to stain all of your binder.

Maximum dosage : The maximum dosage is 10% compared to the binder used. Above 10% it is recommended to incorporate fixators and adjuvant (lime use).
