The Colour of the day is...

Anitas Burnt Umber.


This is a very useful brown and a good undercoat or flat coat for many areas of your model. It can be used on wood, hair, leather and cloth. I use it alot for muskets and Napoleonic campaign trousers for British soldiers fighting in the Peninsula.


Most Anitas colours are fairly average in terms of paint quality but are incredibly cheap at around £0.79p per 59ml bottle. Good consistency, Bad for dry brushing. Easily blended and easy to use.

Use with: Anitas Earth brown and Chocolate brown as highlights. Alternatively use any brown of the same hue that's lighter. Add cream to lighten.
