Cassel Earth Black - 50ml

£12.95

Similar to Van Dyke brown, but this is made not with lignite, but a purified umber. The umber replicates the aspects of the historical cassel earth which unfortunately like so many historical pigments was not particularly lightfast, this is. 

The difference visually would be the cassel earth is a little warmer and slightly, ever so slightly more opaque. This is also a Series 1 versus van Dyke brown being a Series 2.
