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.
|Watercolor paints:||1 part gum Arabic, 1 part pigment, a few drops vegetable glycerin, a few drops water as needed.|

This is where I purchased my stencil if you want the same image.
Don’t have or want this stencil? Why not use another art related stencil, stamp, image, or even draw your image! You could do the same fun project with the outline image of an artist paintbrush, pencil, pen, or marker!
As always, we would love to see what you create! Post a picture of your color pallet or colored paint brush project in the comments below!
