Hampshire Sheen - Intrinsic Color 250ml - White
belonging naturally; essential. “access to the arts is intrinsic to a high quality of life”
What is the Intrinsic Colour Collection? A set of 12 shades of atmospheric colour, 9 of which are shades unique to this set of colours.
Being water based, they are non-flammable, environmentally friendly and afford you a longer working time than alcohol based stains and dyes. They sink deeply into the wood and preserve the appearance of the figure in the wood, releasing the hidden subtleties and enhancing chatoyance. Apply more than one coat of dye to build up sumptuous depth of colour and atmosphere, and add a black or earth undercoat for an even more dramatic effect. The downloadable video guide goes into depth about using the colours in a variety of techniques.
For the adventurous colourist, Intrinsic Colours can be mixed together to create even more shades or thinned with water for a lighter shade.
Presentation: Professional presentation is important, and like Hampshire Sheen, the range has been designed to present it as a professional quality product.
It is important these days for an independent product to stand out from its more established competitors.
Lightfast? No colour is 100% lightfast. They will all fade in time. The pigment manufacturer has given me assurance that they are light fast for at least as long as a normal household paint. To increase the lifetime of the colours, keep finished pieces out of direct sunlight and consider using a UV filtered finishing oil underneath the final finish as an additional layer of protection.
1 250ml bottled water based colour.
Description of Colors:
Black: In several coats you can build up a deep, pure black shade.
Burnt Orange: A dark orange, on the orangey side of brown.
Earth: A warm brown, the colour of drying mud. Sounds bad, but makes a great undercoat or accent colour.
Flame: A bright yellow-orange. Add luxurious fire by blending with Burnt Orange and Ruby.
Forest Green: Rich green, quite dark, a lot like Jade. A great accent colour and blends well with Straw and Honey.
Honey: A glorious yellow. Superb as a bold single colour or a ‘wash’ overcoat.
Midnight Blue: Deep blue with hint of purple. Add to quilted figure and catch the purple glint as you turn the piece.
Plum: Sumptuous Purple. Looks quite Royal, lending an air of expense to your work.
Ruby: Darkish red, Ruby adds a deep and opulent shade which blends superbly with Burnt Orange.
Sky Blue: A fairly bright blue. Mixes magnificently with Midnight Blue.
Pear Green: A rich yellowy-green. Almost grasslike, one of the brightest colours and mixes well with Stone Blue to create a luxury green.
White: A pure white dye perfect for white-washing your work or turning the rest of the colours into lighter, more pastel shades. Please note that this dye will not colour your workpiece white, it is not a paint and should be used as a wash.
Twelve shades of colour developed and mixed by Martin Saban-Smith available here in 250 ml bottles.
Perfect for whitewashing your work or turning the other colours into a more pastel shade. Use with caution. The Intrinsic Colour Collection is a set of distinctive and atmospheric wood dyes in shades designed by pro UK woodturner Martin Saban-Smith. These shades penetrate well.
