5 days - without drier
The drying time depends on temperature, humidity, aeration, and the thickness of the paint coat.
This color is a transparent version of Yellow ochre.
It has a very high transparency and at the same time also has a high color strength and is ideal for glazes, especially in landscape painting.
History: The pigment is available since 1950 and is in principle identical to those of conventional iron oxide pigments. A special manufacturing method called "micronisation", however, makes it possible to produce iron oxides of extremely small particle sizes, giving it excellent glaze characteristics.
