How to produce watercolor paint


Watercolor paint is made by combining pigment, binder, and water. Here's a basic recipe for making watercolor paint:


- Pigment

- Binder (such as gum arabic)

- Water

- Glass muller or flat surface for grinding

- Palette

- Glass dropper or pipette

- Paint tubes or pans

- Spatula or palette knife


1. Choose your pigments. You can use commercially available pigments or make your own by grinding natural materials like minerals or plants.

2. Place a small amount of pigment on the grinding surface.

3. Add a small amount of binder to the pigment. The ratio of pigment to binder will vary depending on the pigment and the desired consistency.

4. Use the glass muller or a flat surface to grind the pigment and binder together until they form a smooth paste.

5. Gradually add water to the paste using a glass dropper or pipette. The amount of water will also depend on the desired consistency.

6. Continue to mix the paint until it is smooth and free of lumps.

7. Transfer the paint to a palette and let it dry.

8. Once the paint is dry, it can be transferred to tubes or pans using a spatula or palette knife.

9. Label the tubes or pans with the color name and any other relevant information.

That's it! You now have your own homemade watercolor paint.
