Making Oil Colors

Ever wonder how to make your own oil paint ?

Making oil colors by hand is an excellent opportunity to learn about the singular character of each pigment. Every pigment behaves differently when ground in oil.

According to specific surface and weight one needs more or less oil and arrives at a larger or smaller amount of ready ground oil color. Generally one can count on using two parts of pigment to one part of oil. In each case, only trying out will reveal the actual amounts.
