The kit allows you to create two colours. To do this, you will have to divide the entire ingredients by two, except for the pigments.
This paint has a very strong covering power but for a better hold in time, we advise you to apply a second layer the following year.
This preparation contains no preservatives and is kept only 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
It is recommended for rough spruce and Scots pine types. Tannin-rich woods and exotic woods may reveal brown spots.
Precaution of use :
Iron sulphate should be handled with gloves and stored out of the reach of children. We advise you to use a mask as a precautionary principle.
Information to know :
The final colour will be a little darker than the colour of the pigment, due to the linen oil which darkens the tint.
The natural pigments (yellow ochre, red ochre) are indestructible to the Uvs, while the synthetic pigments (lavender blue and pistachio green) have less resistance to sunlight.
These pigments are safe for humans, bees and the environment.
Linseed oil and flour are unfit for consumption. The smell of this paint is not very pleasant.
Not all pigments are compatible with the recipe for flour paint.
The carton, PET jars and pouch are recyclable in the yellow bin.
