Use: glaze, watercolor, oil, egg, lime, acrylic and vinyl binder. Very stable in light and darkness. Less covering than white Tiona so appreciated for its transparency. Safe for conventional use, it is however subject to labeling and can not be rejected in nature.
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: white slightly bluish and cold. Important quality: it keeps its original whiteness and does not yellow.
This pigment is 100% synthetic.
History: also called white China. Known since antiquity, it was used in medicine as an anti-inflammatory and was only used as a pigment in the late eighteenth century, slowly replacing lead oxide, very toxic but much less expensive. The impressionists used it more as a brightening agent (Pissarro, Manet). Van Gogh also used it a lot in his paintings.
