Rouge San Francisco with linseed oil
Linseed oil : dilute the powder in some turpentine oil before adding it to linseed oil.
Paint with water/lime paste : 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 (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.
Photo on the right : the pigment is mixed in the badisof plus at the rate of 20% or 200 g per kilo of whitewash.
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 light.
If you want to lighten a pigment, before coloring a transparent binder (linseed oil, wax, acryling binder, caparol...), you can mix it with blanc Tiona 595 (white Tiona).
This pigment is 95% natural and the ingredients that compose it are allowed for the manufacture of cosmetic products to rinse.
Made in France.
History : the color of the famous San Francisco Bridge, "The Golden Gate", is officially called "International Orange". The color has been created from a protective anticorrosion layer placed on the deck steel. The architect decided, despite the many criticisms, to let this color while the Navy wanted it yellow with black stripes to facilitate visibility.
First painted with paint lead, then vinyl, it has been replaced since 1990 by an acrylic paint. 20 000 liters of paint are required each year for the maintenance of the bridge.
It is by reading this story, which left us dreamers, that Ocres de France made, in 2018, the pigment Rouge San Francisco.
