Si j'ai rapporté des pots de peinture bleu majorelle de Marrakech, j'ai depuis des années à ma disposition une quantité non négligeable de boules bleues pour blanchir le linge récupérées dans une vieille maison que je louais à Bordeaux. Du pigment à l'état pur que je dois apprendre à diluer.
Jacques Majorelle and Jean-Baptiste Guimet have a common point : the blue ultramarine. The first one is a painter, the second, chemist, married a painter. Jacques played with colors and gave his name to the blue which recovers the walls of his studio in Marrakesh, Jean-Baptiste finalized a blue ultramarine of synthesis to please his wife who ruined himself by buying some lapis lazuli. The blue Guimet is a major discovery which will serve to clear the linen and the paper.
If I brought back cans of paint blue majorelle from Marrakech, I have for years at my disposal an appreciable amount of blue balls to clear the linen got back in an old house which I rented in Bordeaux. Pigment in pure state which I have to learn to dilute.
