How to fix pigments?
- For example; For tank pallets, we first apply turpentine or zippo gasoline to the pallet and then apply the pigment with a brush. Of course, the ratio of zippo gasoline or turpentine to be on the brush should be very small. (As much as the amount of paint in the dry brushing technique)
- After a while, we wipe off the excess with our fingers or brush.
- Then we pour some pigment into zippo gasoline/turpentine and brush the resulting slurry between the palettes. Again we delete the excess.
- When it dries, we fix it by pouring some “Pigment Fixer” on it.
- Otherwise, that pigment will come out every time your finger touches it. That’s why it’s usually the last step.
- We protect it with the latest spray matt varnish or glossy varnish.
