If the pigment shows wetting problems, a dd a few drops of Ethyl Alcohol (#70800) or Oxgall (#78087) to improve the flowability .

Grind the ingredients with the muller or mortar and pestle to a homogeneous paste . Test the paint on a piece of paper: if the paint shows chalking, add more watercolour medium, if the paint stays tacky after drying, add more pigment.
