Over the last few years, we’re finding that the DIY movement continually inspires artists to get creative with raw materials and we get a lot of questions about how to use Dry Pigments by Gamblin. Dry Pigments are the same pigments used in Gamblin’s Artist’s Oil Colors, which is 100% pure, finely-ground, available in a range of 22 colors, and ON SALE at 25% OFF!
While an artist may want to use Dry Pigments to make their own oil paint by mixing with Linseed Oil or other drying oils such as Poppy, Stand, or Safflower, they can also be used to create other paint mediums using binders for acrylics, watercolors, egg tempera, and fresco. Additionally, Dry Pigments can be mixed with Gamblin Oil Ground to provide a tinted base layer to work on top of.
We’ve seen beautiful results when mixed with Art Resin to fill in negative areas in wood grain, or as a colored coating for surf boards. Artists have used Dry Pigments mixed into grout for mosaic and tile projects with much success. We’ve mixed pigments with pouring mediums in conjunction with, and as a replacement to, acrylic colors – to fabulous results. Are we obsessed? Yup. But mostly, we’re inspired.
