How do you know when you are done mulling the paint? Ive heard you should paint a swatch to see if it comes out smooth and also let it dry and see if any of the pigment rubs off the page. But is there a certain consistency you should reach or any way to tell that you are done? I'm also new to making watercolor, I have just started this past week! Ive mostly been working with mica powders because it is what i already had. Is there a difference between mulling mica and regular pigment powder? do they require different mulling times or different consistency? Thank you! A lot of the questions you guys have already asked have helped me a lot!
Hi everyone ! My name is Clara and I'm from France but moved to Canada a couple years ago. I discovered painting with watercolours a few months ago, fell in love with it, and got really interested in paint making a couple months ago. I haven't started making my own paint yet but I ordered some gear to do so and it's on the way ! I'm really excited to get started and can't wait! Thank you Stacey for sharing all your knowledge and for making such precious resources available, it's greatly appreciated and it already helped me a lot! Nice to meet you all and have a lovely day :)
