DIY Pigment projects (below)

There are many brands of pigments you can find in art shops or online. I happened to get these DIY pigments and wanted to see some of the fun ways I could use them! The great thing about having pigments and making your own products is that you can create your perfect color and use it across mediums! Create your own theme pallet and make it into inks, paints, crayons, pastes, and more! Then, no matter what project you find yourself conquering, you will have your favorite colors to work with.
