Rublev Colours Italian Yellow Earth is a semi- transparent deep golden yellow with good tinting strength, medium grained that makes pale biege half tints. Our yellow earth is quarries in Northern Italy.
Hydrated iron oxide is the principle coloring agent in yellow earths. This color is based on the natural mineral goethite associated with varying proportions of others minerals such as clay, chalk and silica. They differ from other ochres in that they contain water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is hydrated iron oxide. Rublev Oil Colour: Yellow Ochre LightNote
