green pigments. the green pigments are natural earths or chromium oxides. their shades range from almond or clay green to pistachio green, turquoise green and English green.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. Namely, the natural green earths do not have a strong tinting strength.
