Oker (Ochre)


Usually ships within 2-3 days

Ochre is an earth-colour pigment and is formed from hydrated iron oxide, silicon and clay. Shades vary from yellow to brown. The word ochre comes from the Greek Ochros, which means yellowish. By heating the pigment (burning), a darker colour is achieved – burnt ochre.

The Kolderstok colour Oker is yellow veering towards orange. Yellow ochre was often used as an alternative to gilding ornaments.

Please note: applying several layers thinned with water gives a better result than one layer of undiluted paint.
