Ocre rouge RFLES (= red ochre RFLES - dark red washed extra superior) results from the cooking of the ocre jaune JFLES (yellow ochre JFLES), extracted from our quarry in Gargas (Vaucluse). It is the finest ochre, the most followed and the most loaded in iron oxide (for more information, read our article on the manufacture of ochre HERE).

Uses : lime paint, lime coating, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine artsflour paint, suitable for the cosmetics industry.
This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic painting, it should be ground finely in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.

Ocre rouge RFLES 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 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% so 200 g 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 : orange-red brown covering with a transparent binder. Salmon slightly pink with a white binder.

This pigment is 100% natural.

Made in France.

: like the red ochre RFL, which results from the cooking of the yellow ochre JCL, the red ochre RFLES is obtained by the cooking of the yellow ochre JFLES, which is the finest ochre, the most followed and the most loaded with iron oxide. The red ocher is also known under the name of "dark red ocher" and "red ocher of Vaucluse".
