This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic painting, it should be ground finely in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.
Rouge Vermillon mixed with linseed oil
Linseed oil : dissolve the powder in a little bit of turpentine before adding it to the linseed oil.
Water-based paint/fatty lime : 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 deco range) at the rate of 5% so 50g of pigment per kilo of whitewash.
Photo on the right : the pigment is mixed in the Badisof Plus at the rate of 20% so 200g per kilo of whitewash.
These renderings can be similar for any white base mixed with this pigment. However, differences could 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, flour, etc), you can mix it with blanc Tiona (= white Tiona).
Color : color of Barbapapa or Malabar chewing-gum miwed with a white binder.
This pigment is 96% natural.
Made in France.
History : pigment created by Ocres de France in 2019. The vermilion is a warm, bright colour that draws very slightly on the orange. Normal, its name comes directly from «vermeil» which designates a bright red. This red was commonly used in ancient China. The pigment was derived from cinnabar – mercury sulphide – abandoned because it was highly toxic to a synthetic red discovered in the Middle Ages. It becomes one of the palette of medieval painters alongside gold and Ultramarine blue. We are struck by the freshness and sparkle that evokes this red. It is a greedy, opulent and frank colour that speaks of rich red fabrics, poppies, strawberries, ladybugs or pomegranate syrup !
