OCRE JAUNE FONCE JFLES
Ocre jaune foncé JFLES (Jaune Foncé Lavé Extra Supérieur) (= dark yellow ochre JFLES - Dark Yellow Washed Extra Superior) is our ochre star. It is extracted from ochre ore in our quarry at Gargas (Vaucluse). To recover it pure, it is necessary to follow a long process of extraction, separation, washing, settling, drying and grinding (for more information on the manufacture of ochre, clic HERE). It is also with ocre jaune JFLES (dark yellow ochre JFLES) that ocre rouge RFLES (red ochre RFLES) is made by calcinating it. Its color is luminous, soft.
This pigment is 100% natural.

Flour paint with ocre jaune JFLES, made by Jean in Puy-de-Dôme
Ocre jaune JFLES mixed in 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 : beautiful bright yellow ochre with a transparent binder. Light orange yellow with a white binder.
This pigment is 100 % natural.
Made in France.
