Description:
Color: Brown Colour Index: Not Listed ASTM Lightfastness: Not Tested

A reddish brown pigment containing over 35% hematite. We make our mummy from the iron-rich desposits in the Kaluzhskaya province. The largest deposits of this iron-rich mummy are found in the Bechesyn-Bermamytskoye deposit on the Stavropol border and Shilkinskoye deposit in the Chitinskaya province. It is a farily opaque reddish brown with good tinting strength.
Permanence and Compatibility: Our mummy is composed of iron oxides, which are considered to be quite permanent and stable in mixtures with all other pigments. It is very good in oils, and excellent in all aqueous mediums, such as egg tempera, casein, and gum arabic (watercolor). It performs well in wax (encaustic) and fresco techniques.
Oil Absorption and Grinding: No data has been published on the oil absorption properties of mummy.
Toxicity: Mummy is not considered toxic but care should be used in handling the dry powder pigment to avoid inhaling the dust.
