Chamisa Ochre 15ml

  • Chamisa Ochre pigment is a combination of hand foraged Chamisa/Rabbitbrush lake pigment and hand foraged yellow ochre. The flowering chamisa was harvested in a small valley in Central Oregon then transformed into a lake pigment through multistep process. The yellow ochre was gathered from the Clackamas River Valley in Western Oregon. The combination of these two pigments gives a luminous and rich yellow perfect for mixing with Mayan Blue or Falls Creek Red into greens and oranges. 



    The ink is packaged in a 15ml (0.5 oz.) clear glass bottle capped with a glass dropper lid. The indigo powder and white clay are hand ground. The pigment is hand mulled on a glass slab with watercolor medium for a smooth consistency. The pigment in the ink naturally settles over time. Shake before use. 


    This ink is moderately lightfast. It is recommended that this ink be kept out of direct sunlight. The ochre component is very ligthtfast, but the lake pigment component may fade over time in strong sunlight. This ink is suitable for use with brushes. The ink can be diluted with water or combined with other water-based paints and inks. If the ink dries on your palette it can be rewet for use in the same manner as a dry watercolor paint.Please watch my ink video tutorials for more information about how your inks will arrive, how to use oxgall to counteract floccing, and how to blend the inks.


    The ink is all natural, but not suitable for consumption. Keep away from pets and unsupervised children.
