Terre Verte (Dark green)


Usually ships within 2-3 days

Green earth, also known as terre verte, is a green pigment that is created by weathering minerals such as augite or hornblende. The colour-giving substance is a silicate of aluminium, magnesium and iron which varies in composition. The colour of the pigment can vary between light and dark, depending on this composition. A green colour is also achieved by the application of copper compounds such as green copper acetate. See the Verdigris information for this.

The Kolderstok colour Terre Verte is a dark green, veering towards black. Green was used for the higher parts of the hull of small yachts and for separate pieces.

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