yellow pigments

yellow pigments. the tones of these pigments range from fairly strong mustard yellow to light beige through ocher yellow to slightly orangey yellow and brown yellow.

Pigments are particles of fine material which have the function of modifying the colour of paints, coatings, mortars, lime or concrete, in which they are diffused.
There are natural pigments and synthetic pigments. According to each pigment we will have a more or less strong colouring power. The colour of the binder will also have an influence on the final shade.
