About Sienna Brown, 864
Sienna Brown, 864 was one of our first six colors. An elegant brown created to fit into the mostly transparent palette at the time, this color easily falls into several color schemes. It becomes deeper in tone, approaching black as it is melted into larger gathers.
Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (black with gray wisps).
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This transparent what you see is what you get is a warm brown, meaning it has tint of reddish amber to lighten up the color.
Sienna is a cinnamon brown that can be predictable and the intensity can be controlled by thickness of color application. When drawing down into stringers you can encase solid clear or color with Sienna and achieve a very light tint, or in blown application get an extremely subtle tint by sandwiching in clear and blowing thin.
Sienna handles just like GA Beryl or GA Cobalt 1, in the way that is holds heat well, melts into itself smoothly, and leaves no trace of where color was layered upon itself. Great for blow in or puff and stuff maneuvers when you need a tube of consistent color tone to work with." - Mike Shelbo
