Ottella, natural Italian Earth
Typically Morainic clay earth, Lake Garda, Italy. The rich mineral content of this soil type makes it ideal for wine making, known locally as ‘Lugana’ – as a pigment it is ideal for watercolour: permanent, transparent, soft fawn-umber shade, delicate in mixes. Hand-dug, cleaned and processed under our production.

This is a special grade of Nickel Titanium Yellow pigment, blended with best quality Titanium dioxide to create this off-white shade. Ideal for highlights, where white alone is too invasive. Opaque as mass tone, some transparency as a wash. Permanent.
Lemon Yellow (Nickel Titanate) (PY53)
Modern, opaque metal mineral pigment. Very good hiding power.
Horton Lemon (PY3)
Synthetic organic pigment, very intense – cool lemon shade. Transparent when diluted to a wash.
Cadmium Lemon Yellow (PY35)
Opaque, intense, dense. Slightly transparent when compared to Cadmium Yellow.
