paint with water / lime paste: dilute the pigment in a little water to make it liquid before incorporating it into the paint.
lime powder / cement / plaster: directly incorporate the pigment (up to 5% based on the weight of the binder), then mix in order to stain all of your binder.
Photo on the left: 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. Right picture: the pigment is mixed in the badisof plus 20% pigment 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 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.
Color: beautiful bright red pulling a little towards the rose with a transparent binder. Fresh rose with a white binder.

History: During the years 1950-1960, the American artist Mark Rothko uses red lithol in several of his works. He offers a series of paintings done with a palette of shades of this red pigment at Haward University in 1962. The works were installed in a bright room of the university. Over the years, the bright colors of the paintings will darken to black. It turned out that the high brightness to which the paintings were subjected was responsible for the degradation of the pigment. The paintings were moved to a less exposed room in 1979. However the damage on the paintings is considered irreversible. The red port is a reproduction of red lithol with better light hold. Pigment preparation designed by Ste ocres de France in 2016.
