Aqueous Dispersions

I'd like to try working with aqueous dispersions. Having pigment ground and ready mixed with water will ease my paint making with egg tempera. For watercolor, it is a simple matter to fill tubes and pans--no matter how much is mixed, it is all easily stored. Egg tempera is not so accomodating--whatever's mixed must be used in a few days. Being able to simply shake up a bottle and squeeze a bit of pigment saves a good deal of pigment mix and mess.

I am saturated with egg tempera technique and theory. Three more books are on the way. Natural Pigment just emailed that my order has shipped. I am so looking forward...

Here's a great article on aqueous dispersions.
