Bleu lavande with oil
Flaxseed oil : Dilute the powder in a little turpentine before adding it to linseed oil.
Paint with water/lime paste : dilute the pigment in a little 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.
Photo on the left : pigment is mixed in the badisof plus (limewash ready to use, which you can find in our decorative range) at the rate of 5% or 50 g of pigment per kilo of whitewash.
Right picture : the pigment is mixed in the badisof plus 20% pigment or 200 g per kilo of whitewash.
Maximum dosage : The maximum dosage is 10% compared to the binder used. Above 10% it is recommended to incorporate fixators and adjuvant (lime use).
These renderings can be similar for any white base mixed with this pigment. However, differences will 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 clear.
If you want to lighten a pigment, before coloring a transparent binder (linseed oil, wax, acrylic binder, caparol...), you can mix it with white tiona.
Color : lavender blue (purple) with a transparent binder, very pale with a white binder.
This pigment is 75% natural.
