Mica Pigments in Paint Making
I have written before about mixing mica pigments into existing paints. Now I am going to share my experiences making paint from mica powders and an acrylic medium. First let us look at what I started with as far as supplies.
Paint Making Made Simple
What I started of with is a bottle of Handy Art Acrylic Polymer Medium, a mixing container, and some dark purple mica pigment and a little water. First, I dispensed half a tea spoon of mica pigment into the mixing container. Then add water to create a dispersion. If the pigment resist wetting then a few drops of isopropyl alcohol may be added.
