just read your document on FAQ's etc, in regard to sinking in of the umbers, apparently because of their clay content (PBr7 from natural iron oxide ore).
(1) I have just noted that W & N make a similar colour, synthetic iron oxide PR101 (transparent brown oxide) which has, apparently, micronised pigment particles which I doubt would contain any organic substances such as the problematic clay referred to above? If I use the latter should I then avoid the sinking in associated with PBr7? (all other things being equal);
(2) If I use an oil-based primed canvas such as lead white (instead of an acrylic gessoed one) would this stop the sinking in, even if I use PBr7?
Many thanks in advance
