Our natural, water and
oil-soluble color pigment powders replicate the breathtaking beauty only Mother
Earth can create. Made from rocks, minerals, and earth, they deliver a brilliance
and inner depth that makes working with them an artistic adventure no ordinary
paint can hope to achieve.
Because BioShield pigments
directly reflect the uniqueness of the natural materials from which they are derived,
variations can exist from batch to batch, making our color references close
approximations of the average tone of each pigment.
Most pigments provide
brilliant tones, disburse easily, have high UV resistance, and weather well.
How to Guage Tones and Quantities:
Due to both natural
variations in color and how aggressively a given base will couple with a
pigment, substantial differences in outcomes will result. The more white a
given base contains, the greater will be the quantity of pigment needed to
saturate that base with color. For best results, be careful how you measure and
always make a test sample. After you have achieved the effect you desire, mix
the quantity needed to finish the entire job.
Pigments will create outstanding effects when used with BioShield Wall Glaze
#15, Clay Paint #12, Resin & Oil Stain Finish #3, Aqua Resin Stain Finish
#33, and Resin Floor Finish #4. When used with a high white base, such as our
Solvent-Free Wall Paint #180, and Aqua Resin Trim Enamel #63, BioShield Color
Pigments will tend toward pastels.
Pigment Colors consist of fine powders extracted from earth, rock, and
minerals. Sienna, Ultramarine, and Spinell colors are heated in order to
achieve their tones. Rutil and Spinell pigments utilize metal oxides and porcelain
clays heated at high temperatures (800-1400° C).
Caution: Some pigments may
permanently stain fabrics; avoid contact with clothing.
