It's a transparent brown natural earth containing usually over 90% of organic matter. Derived from earth compounds such as soil and peat and positively identified in paintings since the 17th century, was extensively used in the 19th Century in both oils and watercolor. This color is found in the pictures of the old masters, among them Rubens, who used it mixed with gold ochre as a warm, transparent brown, which held up particularly well in resin varnish.
Extensively used in the 19th Century in both oils and watercolor. Partially transparent in oil and as a result, has been used for staining woods and glazing in pictures.
Dissolves in oil, water or waxes.
