How to mix paint? Scoop a small mound of pigment (one or two tbsp.) on a palette, piece of glass, or flat container. Make an indentation in the centre like a volcano, slowly add a small amount of refined walnut oil, and mix thoroughly with a palette knife until the thick paste forms. Adjust amounts of oil and pigment until you get a thick paste consistency.
That is it! You have just made the most archival, radiant and pure paint that is free of any fillers, stabilizers, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and petroleum-based pigments.
- If desired, you can mix up the entire packet of pigment and store in an aluminium tube or airtight container
- These paints mix perfectly with any brand of conventional tubed oil paints. Feel free to use a combination of the two
- If you run out of walnut oil, you can use any refined walnut or linseed oil. Walnut oil is preferred as Linseed oil has a tendency to "yellow" a painting as it ages
How to thin paint: The use of solvents (as a paint thinner and brush cleaner) is a relatively recent development in the art history. Instead of solvents, traditional oil painters such as Rembrandt typically used walnut or linseed oil to thin their paint and clean their brushes. These days you can either use the Eco-Solve which is a 100% plant-based and non-toxic paint thinner or the refined Walnut oil.
