One Cup Recipe
Mix two generous tablespoons on Paint Minerals with 2-3 tablespoons of water in a jar with a tight fitting lid & shake well. Paint Minerals should be a creamy consistency similar to yogurt or lotion. Add a bit more water if necessary & shake or stir again. Add the Paint Minerals mixture to one cup of flat* latex paint & shake really well one more time!
*Paint Minerals can be used with other types of latex but for a chalky, porous surface that accepts finishing well, flat paint is recommended. Latex with built in primer can be thick & require additional water to achieve a desired consistency.
Mix three tablespoons of Paint Minerals with 1/3 cup of flat latex. Shake or stir well for 20-30 seconds. This mixture can be left open to thicken or you can add more Paint Minerals to achieve the desired consistency.
Mix 2 tablespoons of Elmer’s or other white glue with ¼ cup of white flat latex plus 1 tablespoon of water and 3 tablespoons of Paint Minerals. Shake well. Add more Paint Minerals or leave open overnight to thicken more.
Use a fork or small whisk to thoroughly mix 4 tablespoons of dry pigment with 2 tablespoons of Paint Minerals. Mix two tablespoons of latex with two tablespoons of water. Make an indent in the dry pigment pile and add watered down latex slowly, mixing until you achieve the desired consistency. Gouache will take a considerable amount of mixing. Unlike traditional gouaches, which can be reactivated and are not water resistant, latex based mixes will harden and cure and cannot be reactivated.
Note: Large amounts of Paint Minerals in small amounts of paint will lighten your paint color. After you impart your texture, use a wash of latex to deepen the color if you choose.
