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!
