Uses : lime paint, lime coating, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine artsflour paint.
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 jaune clair mixed with linseed oil

Warning : this pigment is usable in flour paint but has a color quite different from that of powder pigment : 

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 binderflour paint etc), you can mix it with blanc Tiona (= white Tiona).

Color : bright yellow ocher with a transparent binder. With a white binder, we obtain a cream color.

This pigment is 100% natural.
