Pale Ochre is a useful and versatile colour. When used to create lighter mixes it behaves like an off-white by adding a gentle undertone to the final colour.; Sennelier gathers only the finest organic and inorganic pigments from around the world. These pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a rich satin finish. This paint has a unique buttery texture.
