Van Dyke Brown is suitable as a very dark earth with a red hue such as that found in Eastern Europe.
Each pot contains approx 20ml of earth pigment (weathering powder) Our Pigments are finely ground Natural Earth Pigments and of the highest quality. Over recent years earth pigments have become extremely popular with model makers, who wish to achieve realistic and authentic looking finishes, especially with military and railway enthusiasts where a weathered look is far more desirable. The pigments are commonly mixed with thinners to create a paste or mixed with acrylic resins or varnish and glues to replicate urban, rural, industrial or warfare surface conditions like: dust, dirt, mud, rust or surfaces that are in state of damage or repair.
Our pigments are not sold for cosmetic, pharmaceutical or food use. Use care when handling any dry pigment. Avoid inhaling pigment dust. Please note, Earth pigments can sometimes vary slightly in colour from the illustration because of flash photography and your monitor settings.
