Olive umber Kaia natural vegan watercolor

This olive umber is a raw natural umber (earth pigment) that was mined in Italy. Umber is a collective name for earth pigments in different shades of brown with a high manganese dioxyde content. Although it was probably used thousands of years before, we know of accounts of the use of umbers since the 11th century. This olive umber is a cool brown color that hinges towards olive green. The color is very useful for both landscape and portrait painting. This pigment has colorindex PBr8.77727.

About the paint

Kaia Natural Watercolor is completely natural, non-toxic, vegan and made with love. The natural pigments I use in Kaia Natural Watercolor are made of earth pigments (crushed rock) or white sediment clay that is colored with botanical colorants. The latter are called Mayan pigments and the method to produce them was invented by the Mayan people around 500 BC. The synthetic pigments that paint is normally made of are usually derived from petroleum, a very polluting product. They are essentially tiny plastic balls that aren’t biodegradable and that end up in the water system when you flush your paint water through the sink.

Professional artist quality

The pigments I use in Kaia Natural Watercolor have the highest possible ranking of lightfastness, which means they don’t fade over time under the influence of light and/or oxygen. Also the paint contains between 85% and 90% pigment as opposed to only 10% to 40% in paint of hobby or student quality. There are no fillers being used. Because of these qualities Kaia Natural Watercolor is of professional artist quality. The paint is also very suitable for beginners and children though!
