Called Also Spanish Ochre Is A Very Bright Yellow Or Roman Ochre

burnt, by which operation it acquires warmth, colour, transparency, and

depth. Moderately bright, it forms good flesh tints with white, dries

and works well both in water and oil, and is a very good and eligible

pigment. It may be used in enamel painting, and has all the properties

of its original ochre in other respects.

A redder hue is imparted by mixing the ochre with powdered nitre before

ignition, the orange red being subsequently washed with hot water.
