Welcome Mike. I'm curious as to why you want to mix your own paints.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

Hi, welcome to the forum. @leighann I have no idea how to mix up paint from pigment. I'm really not sure why you would do that. @Sorin is creative like that. Hope he chimes in.

Because I have found that not all oil paints are mixed the same, lets set aside the fact that student colors, artist colors are not the same it's the fact that when the paint makers make it they change up the formulation and the quality suffers, i know all about that, because of where i work, and where i work has nothing to do with painting, it has all to do with color cosmetics, plus i am looking into it if it's worth my wild to do so or just buy the premixed pigment and mix the oil into it.
