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.
Maximum dosage : The maximum dosage is 10% compared to the binder used. Above 10% it is recommended to incorporate fixators and adjuvant (lime use).
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 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 595 (white Tiona).
Color : intense black with bluish tints when it's mixed with a clear binder. Deep gray mixed with a white binder.
This pigment is 100% natural.
Made in France.
History : The real black vine was obtained by the charring of vine shoots harvested during the pruning of the vines. Nowadays, it has been replaced by a black iron oxide that faithfully reproduces its original color.
