Hand Milling Oil Paint

Materials
Pigment, Cold Pressed or Refined Linseed Oil, glass muller, glass sheet, palette knife.

Method
Take a handful of pigment, make a well in it and pour in about a tablespoon of oil.
Mix into a stiff paste using a palette knife.

Grinding is best done standing, applyingpressure whilst moving the muller in a figure of eight motion on the glass slab.

Periodically scrape paste into the centre of the slab and off the muller.

When properly ground no grains should be seen and no grittiness may be heardor felt.

Store the paint in containers such as empty paint tubes or clean glass jars with airtight lid.

Pigment to oil ratios vary depending on chosen pigment. Always try to make paint with the minimum of oil to produce a workable consistancy, thereby minimising yellowing and wrinkling.
