Pigment Dispersions are highly concentrated pigments that are not suspended in a binder. Please view this link for Pigment Dispersion Technical Data Sheet

The Pigment Dispersions are made for tinting and should not be used alone or to paint with directly to a surface. The dispersions must be added to a water based system that contains a binder. It is advisable to test for compatibility. They are 5 times or 20% stronger in tint strength than the Slow Drying Fluid Acrylic paints.

  • Due to the high pigment concentration, these colors are very strong. Please use cautiously and sparingly.
  • The pigments used in the Dispersions are the same in the Slow Dry Fluid Acrylics.
  • The viscosity/thickness of the base material should not be compromised by the Pigment Dispersions, as only small amounts are required to achieve the desired color.
  • Burnt Umber and Raw Umber are noticeably thicker in viscosity than some other colors, for example, Hansa Yellow Opaque or Quinacridone Magenta. This is caused by the pigments themselves and the need to stabilize them. Shaking the containers thoroughly allows the earth pigments to thin and dispense from the containers.
  • Names are the pigment chemical names.
  • The lid is a twist top as is the Matting Additive, these two products need to be added to another product and cannot be used by themselves.
