Special pastel shade formula
You will need:
jug, 1 liter
water and detergent to clean equipment and brushes
latex, 2 liter
water, 250 ml
pigment, 100 g
Put the latex in the bucket. Mix the pigment with water. Add the mixture to the latex and mix into a lump-free, homogeneous mass. You can now apply the coloured latex with a roller or brush.
Use more or less pigment for darker or lighter shades. Do not use more than 20% pigment in any case. Latex or emulsion paints do not provide intense shades. Slaked lime (X) is a better paint type in such cases. Not all pigments are suitable for cement or slaked lime. The alkaline nature of cement and slaked lime causes some pigments to bleach, while others disappear entirely. Use earth colours in such cases. The best blues are ultramarine and cobalt blue (X).
