French Cassel Earth, NB8, bituminous earth also goes by the names Cologne Earth or Van Dyke Brown. In comparison to our Van Dyke Brown, our French Cassel Earth is much less a violet warm brown and has a unique cool quality that brings it closer to black than brown. It does appear similar to asphaltum or bitumen in that it appears black with brown undertones. The texture and sheen of French Cassel Earth is both dry and tarlike at the same time. Cassel Earth is a naturally slow drier and tints to a warm and subtle gray. It is not a strong mixer but does impart a warm glow when used in place of black. Only moderate in lightfastness, we recommend a final, UV protective varnish for maximum durability.
