Tips & Tricks~
To make your colors spread quickly always wet the paper with a water mister. Adding salt or oxgall, only one or the other is ever necessary in creating lovely random gradient flow.
If you wish to add sheen to the color while mixing with other tube colors one can add a little wet gum arabic in progess. It always re-wets.
Always work with creating a simple chart for understanding your personal rhythm to a mineral based pigment. Everyone is different, results always vary. The color and intensity will always be the same. When feeling a lack of interest but a need to be painting I will often make a simple unimportant sample to get started in a creative mind set.
For the environmentally sensitive I recommend non latex gloves or finger cut offs when desiring to use your hands. Though it is non toxic one should always be safe in hands on applications.
