Product description


Series 3

Rublev Colours Hematite is bluish red with above average tinting strength. It is opaque, fine grained, goes on smoothly and brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Our Hematite is a single pigment color made of natural iron oxide mineral from the ore deposits in the United States.

Red iron oxide or ferric oxide is the principle coloring agent in the natural mineral hematite, which is often associated with varying proportions of other minerals such as clay, chalk and silica.

Natural red oxides, such as hematite, are very opaque, absolutely permanent and have excellent covering power. They are strong absorbers of ultraviolet light.

Rublev Colours Hematite Artist Oil

Note: The scan of the "drawdown" (left) contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns are scraped to show undertones.
