Fields of application

 The pigments can be used in many fields of application. In the following, you can find some examples of “recipes.” These recipes serve only as a reference; we recommend that you test them before applying them on your substrate. 

Flour paint for wood, called « Swedish painting » 

  Tlivret terres et couleurshis technique has been popularized by the Association Terres et Couleurs, and was emphasized in the program Des racines et des ailes, which was dedicated to this painting technique.
  That is why we don’t reveal this recipe here and highly recommend buying the booklet devoted to this technique; it allows the association to develop new projects.
