Synthetically enhanced oxides are very similar to natural mineral pigments as natural iron oxide is often the main component.
Oxides have a greater colouring power than natural earths and ochres pigments. These pigments yield deeper natural tones with a matte opaque finish and are UV resistant.
Our small packets of pigments are sold by volume (only the larger 1 kilo/2.2 pound bags are by weight). The values indicated on the labels (ex: 80ml/2.7 OZ or 150ml/5 OZ) are volume, not weight. As every pigment has very different densities and as we use volumes of pigments for our paint recipes, we sell the smaller packages in volumes to align with our recipes.
