(Ocre jaune JCL with oil)
Flaxseed oil: Dilute the powder in a little turpentine before adding it to linseed oil.
paint with water / lime paste: dilute the pigment in a little water to make it liquid before incorporating it into the paint.
lime powder / cement / plaster: incorporate the pigment directly, then mix in order to stain all of your binder.
recommended dosage: The maximum dosage is 10% relative to the binder used. Above 10%, it is recommended to incorporate fixers and adjuvants (use lime).
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: bright yellow ocher, a little more orange than JFLES, with a transparent binder. Yellow ocher / light orange with a white binder.
This pigment is 100% natural.
Made in France
History: yellow ocher JCL (Light Yellow Washed) is of poorer quality than dark yellow ocher JFLES. Less thin, less loaded with iron oxide, it is, what is called "discovery". When the bulldozer starts digging, it releases a first layer of ore: it is the yellow ocher JCL. The deeper we dig towards the heart of the Massif, the better the quality of the ore.
We use recyclable PET jars, disposable, clean in the yellow bins.
