French Raw Umber, PBr7, seems to contain a little more depth than our regular raw umber. The French version has a green tone to it that gives a little kick to its colour. It's colour is that of discarded tea leaves, mostly brown but once green. Moderate in mixing strength it produces a subtle tint much like the colour of parchment.
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.
