בולה ארמני

Definition from Wikipedia:
בולה ארמני הינו סוג של פיגמנט/צבע המיוצר מאדמת חומר. השם הלועזי בולה (Bole) הוא שם הפיגמנט, כאשר ארמני הינו תת-גוון אשר מקורו בארמניה. צבעו אדמדם חום, והוא משמש ליצירות אומנות וקרמיקה או פגמנטציה של חימר לצבעים אלו.

Example sentence(s):
  • צביעת הקרמיקה נעשית עם גוון בולה ארמני. - ידע כללי 

המונח בעברית אינו נפוץ, ואני ממליץ שבנוסף לכיתוב בעברית - בולה ארמני - יתלווה המינוח בלועזית בסוגריים -
(Armenian Bole)
