Limn Colors Caput Mortuum

Caput mortuum, aka mummy brown or mummy violet, is a rich brown earth pigment. A diffused wash brings out darker granulation, violet tones, and red blooms. It's unpredictable in a wash, which is fun for experimentation. Dry on dry, it's a purplish cocoa, and the natural sparkles in the pigment are more apparent.
