French Burnt Ochre, PBr7, is the coloir of dark chocolate and unlike the other ochres, has an extremely dry matte finish. While the texture of these paints is usually described as velvety, French Burnt Ochre is suede; dry and soft. It is difficult to not touch it or stroke the dried paint, as its surface beckons fingers. French Burnt Ochre has similar mixing and tinting strengths to the other ochres.
Each colour is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colours will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined and PH- balanced linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This provides total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French colour makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. The paint is packed in 37 ml and 150 ml non-reactive aluminum tubes. Larger quantities of paint are packed in aluminium cans using only the purest materials.
