Mixed with French polish or Shellac these light fast, inert Earth Pigments are used for painting in filler repairs and blemishes and for re-applying masking colour. A thin mix will be semi-translucent; a thick mix will be opaque. Apply with a fine brush or goose wing feather to re-create a grain effect. However, not being soluble in water or spirit they do require a binder, but rubbed in dry to an open surface they will produce an aged effect on the blank face of the filler. Earth Pigments can also be used to colour paint, varnish, waxes, grout, fillers and glues. 100ml pot.
