Primary Elements Arte-Pigments (PE) are Translucent hand-milled Arte-Pigments mixed with mica and other minerals. Primary Elements are sold as a dry paint pigment.
Clean up with soap and water and dissolve in any WATER soluble mediums, Acrylic mediums, Gel mediums, water-soluble varnish, Polyurethane, OR gum binders.
In the Video the Primary Elements Arte-pigments were mixed in the Vivid Clear Acrylic Enamel- available at www.colourarte.com All ColourArte products are hand mixed and poured in the USA
SUBJECT: Mixing your paint
Extra Step: When using Primary Elements Arte-Pigments you have a special step- 1/2 tsp dry Pigments mix with 1 oz. (2 tablespoons) acrylic medium -mix WELL in 4 oz. salsa cup, I use the Vivid Clear acrylic Enamel I like how it looks and dries to a gloss magnifying the brilliance of the pigments. Mix pigments in well till they totally dissolve.
Pouring medium: Liquitex Pouring medium, Gac 800, Artists loft pouring medium
There are many who eyeball and others who measure and weigh their ingredients:
10-20% pouring medium needs to be mixed in BEFORE the water. Your goal is to BOND your additive and acrylic base together into one smooth base. MIX well until they are smooth.
Water: What is not a specific science is a precise measurement of water.
Each acrylic base has a unique threshold (varying from manufacture to manufacture) of how much water it can accept before the acrylic adhesion is compromised and “ crazing” occurs – ( WHICH IS WHY many artists use pouring medium as insurance.)
Each Pigment also has a unique threshold and speed in which the color accepts water.
It is ALWAYS best to add your water slowly (add a tsp or less of water at a time). WHY? The pigments build, swell, and accept the water at their own pace, there is NO rushing this process. Even if you know precisely how much water should go into a color you’ve mixed a dozen times, THERE are NO CUTTING corners of this part of the paint mixing. DO NOT make the mistake of dumping in all the water at once, you will have to mix and mix, and risk it still will not come outright.
Yes, the mixing is the tedious part but It can be relaxing and you eventually will learn the feel of the paint and know when it is the right consistency.
Which is the KEY to your success?
- Too thick-Paint will drop off the stick in clumps OR paint flow “breaks” and then starts again.
- TOO thin- its runs off stick like water
- Perfect Flows evenly like a heavy cream off the Popsicle stick
Silicone: WD 40 Specialist Water Resistance silicone
Once you have a perfect consistency you can add a couple of shots Silicone or Dimethicone.
Silicone Mixed in all colors BUT Black
