Linseed oil : dilute the powder in some turpentine oil before adding it to linseed oil.
Paint with water/lime paste : 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.

Color : dark yellow pulling toward the color of ochre with a transparent binder. With a white binder, we obtain a yellow eggshell, slightly orange.

This pigment is 100% natural.

History : pigment preparation made by Société des Ocres de France. The Indian yellow has a special history : either it is derived from a paste resulting from the evaporation of the urine of cows fed with mango leaves and water ; or it was extracted from mango shoots prepared in decoction... In the 19th century, this pigment has been replaced by mixed pigments.
