Pigment made by Ocres de France
Uses : lime paint, lime coating, wax, paint, plaster, fresco, glaze, cement, fine arts.
This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic painting, it should be ground finely in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.
Jaune citron 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 : yellow acidulated slightly pulling towards green with a transparent binder. Light yellow, a little cold, with a white binder.
This pigment is synthetic without any danger for health or the environment and it is composed of 99% of natural ingredients.

History : pigment preparation made by Ocres de France in 2015. In the history of the definition of the color "lemon yellow", the battle has been tough ! Indeed, the color is different depending on the stage of maturity of the lemon : yellow green when it is not ripe or orange yellow when it is too much - hard to know ! But in the end, most of the people seem to consider the lemon yellow as a green yellow color ; so this vision wins.
