OCRE JAUNE JCL
L'ocre jaune JCL (= yellow ochre JCL) is extracted from ochre ore in our quarry in Gargas (Vaucluse). It has a poorer quality than dark yellow ocher JFLES. Less thin, less loaded with iron oxide, it is what is called "the discovery". When the bulldozer starts digging, it releases a first layer of ore : it is the yellow ocher JCL.
This pigment is 100% natural.
Pigment made by Ocres de France
Uses : lime paint, lime coating, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine arts, flour 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 JCL 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 : bright yellow ocher, a little more orange than the JFLES with a transparent binder. Yellow ocher/light orange with a white binder.
This pigment is 100% natural.
Made in France.
History : l'ocre jaune JCL (yellow ocher JCL - light yellow washed) is extracted from ochre ore in our quarry in Gargas (Vaucluse). To recover it pure, it is necessary to follow a long process of extraction, separation, washing, settling, drying and grinding. It is also with l'ocre jaune JCL (yellow ochre JCL) that ocre rouge RFL (red ochre RFL) is made by calcinating it. It has a poorer quality than dark yellow ocher JFLES. Less thin, less loaded with iron oxide, it is what is called "the discovery". When the bulldozer starts digging, it releases a first layer of ore : it is the yellow ocher JCL. Deeper we dig towards the heart of the massif, better the quality of ochre is.
