Pigment made by Ocres de France
Uses : lime paint, lime coating, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine arts.
This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic painting, it should be ground finely in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.
Bleu canard mixed with linseed oil
Linseed oil : dissolve the powder in a little bit of turpentine before adding it to the linseed oil.
Water-based paint/fatty lime : dilute the pigment in some water to make it liquid before incorporating it into the paint.
Lime powder/cement/plaster : directly incorporate the pigment (up to 10% based on the weight of the binder), then mix in order to stain all of your binder.
Maximum dosage : The maximum dosage is 10% compared to the binder used. Above 10% it is recommended to incorporate fixators and adjuvant (lime use).
Photo on the left : the pigment is mixed in the Badisof Plus (lime paint ready to use which you can find in our "ready-to-use" range) at the rate of 5% so 50 g of pigment per kilo of whitewash.
Photo on the right : the pigment is mixed in the Badisof Plus at the rate of 20% so 200 g per kilo of whitewash.
These renderings can be similar for any white base mixed with this pigment. However, differences could be possible for the use of paints more or less loaded with titanium dioxide (white pigment), which will give a final color more or less light.
Color : blue-green with a transparent binder; with a white binder, lightens and pulls a little more on the blue but remains very covering and saturated.
This pigment is synthetic but it is composed of 90% of natural ingredients.
Made in France.
