πŸ€”πŸ€” umber burned


#1

what is the color umber burned and what is it for?


#2

Burnt umber is a brownish pigment that warms up the skintone. It has an orangey tone to it so I always mix with a bit of blue to neutralize


#3

also serves to darken the kit?


#4

Light washes (burnt umber mixed with lots of thinner) don’t darken the kit unless you are doing lots of layers. I, generally use 1-2 washes at the very end to liven up the skin tone. I have made AA babies by using lots of layers of burnt umber mixed with blue though so it is a useful color to have.
