Change up your watercolor techniques by learning How to Make Watercolor Paint right at home. This DIY involves creating watercolor paint from Perfect Pearls pigment powder. Adding water to the pigment powder makes very pretty light pastel colors, but if you want deeper colors for your watercolor painting you can add more colors or stains to your mixture. Feel free to test the pigment powder with different types of colors to find your perfect match.  Either way, you will have a lovely collection of colors to work with for all of your future watercolor creations.
