Our Genuine Burnt Sienna is made in Tuscany (where the province of Sienna lies) by calcining raw Sienna earth. Burnt Sienna is roasted in a kiln to a deep transparent brown with fiery orange undertones. It is very versatile in mixtures, well known for making great grays with Ultramarine Blue. Excellent with a variety of oil colors for its exceptional color mixing potential. This genuine-earth color makes a perfect starting point for flesh tones. A stable on the painters' palette!
