Vert pomme mélangé à de l'huile de lin
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).
Color : mixed with lime, the pigment becomes sweet and fresh anise green.
This pigment is 97% natural.
Made in France.
History : Chevreul defined the "apple green" as the "bright green". In fact, this pretty fresh and tender green is reminiscent of spring, wheat grass, fresh peas or Granny Smith apple. In the colour spectrum, the "vert pomme" (apple green) is the first tint to shift the vision from warm and toned coulours to neutral and cold colours.
It can easily be associated with neutral tones - black, grey and white - but also, more subtly, with taupe, khaki green or dark chocolate.
