How much pigment should I put in my mixture to color ?
Very often, we see the mistake made by some customers : to put too much pigment by wanting to accentuate the coloring power of the pigment. However, the pigment has a saturation beyond which not only will your pigment not color more, but it will also risk disgorging and soiling your hands/furniture when rubbing.It can also «chalk» leaving unsightly white traces on your wall.

First of all, it depends on the ingredients you are going to put in your mixture. If it is adjuvanted (as are our Badisof/Badisof Plus), the dosage is between 0.1 and 20% for natural pigments, and between 0.1 and 15% for synthetic pigments. Otherwise, we advise you not to exceed 15% for natural and 5-7% for synthetic. The percentage is calculated in relation to the total volume of your mixture. It is therefore necessary to know exactly what you are going to put in it and in what proportions before choosing your pigment and its dosage.
