Hematite stones are crushed and milled to a fine pigment to create a dramatic reddish brown watercolor with maximum granulation. Perfect for rugged landscapes and the natural texture of wood, stones and brick. Hematite is ground from a heavy silvery-black mineral rich in iron. In a thick wash, the heavier particles settle, creating bold granulation. In a thin wash, it is a rich sienna. Hematite Burnt Scarlet mixes wonderfully with other colors both neutralizing the color and adding beautful granulation. Semi-Transparent. Low staining.
