Making your own Weathering Pigments
My bags of pigment have arrived and I am quite pleased that I took the punt, they are definitely what I was hoping for. I purchased a yellow oxide, red oxide, raw sienna and burnt sienna as these seemed the most usable at this stage. I also decided to drop by The Range and pick up some jars, at £1 each they were perfect.
The next step now that I have bottled them will be to do some mixing experiments to try and match some of the more common commercially available pigments. At £8 I think I did quite well, there is about half a bag of each pigment left after bottling them up so I should have a fairly long lasting supply here. I'll do another post when I get round to trying my hand at some mixology.
I may be late to the party here but If you use weathering powders regularly, I would strongly suggest looking into bulk pigments if you don't already.
