This pigment is powder. For use in Artistic painting, it should be finely ground in a mortar before mixing with the binder.
Flaxseed oil: Dilute the powder in a little turpentine before adding it to the linseed oil.
water-based paint / lime paste: dilute the pigment in a little water to make it liquid before adding it to the paint.
lime powder / cement / plaster: incorporate the pigment directly, then mix in order to stain all of your binder.
recommended dosage: The maximum dosage is 10% relative to the binder used. Above 10%, it is recommended to incorporate fixers and adjuvants (use lime).
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.

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, flour ...), you can mix it with white tiona.

who has never heard of the "bleu charrette"?
Behind this mystical name lies a simple explanation.
Formerly cart drivers painted them by painting a painting of prussian blue and baryta sulphate. This one had the particularity of repelling insects. Interesting, but if this formula is not great for small animals, is it safe for us?
In our approach of "without danger / without polluting, we did not recover the recipe of our ancestors.
Some say with conviction that this beautiful painting was simply colored with pastel "Isatis Tinctoria". Perfect, this idea seduces us more, but will we know how to talk to plants, we specialists in minerals?
And then, in the end! we do not drive carts any more and suddenly, nobody is likely to be pursued by a mosquito in need of blood, right?
In this case, here is our bleu charrette revisited, closer to its original color, or at least .... it is believed.
We use recyclable PET jars, disposable, clean in the yellow bins and glass jar, that you can clean and sterilize for other uses, even food.
