A colourful note: sienna’s shades of orange and red come from a mix of iron oxide and magnesium oxide. In its natural state it verges on yellow-brown and is termed raw sienna; when heated it turns red-brown and is called burnt sienna.
The yellow-brown raw sienna shade first appeared in Crayola crayon form in its original collection in 1903, but was discontinued in 1910. However, the name resurfaced in 1958, with more of a brown tint than its original incarnation.
