This pigment is in powder. For use in artistic paint, it should be finely ground in a mortar before mixing it with the binder.
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.
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 : 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 : Yellow ocher JCL (light yellow washed) is extracted from the open air quarry of Ocres de France, in Gargas. 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.
