Formula for Cadmiums

This formula is for cadmiums from Kremer Pigments.  I have made each of the cadmiums they carry and each one has made with the same formula and does not require stand time or aging.

4:1 ratio

For a 37  ml tube:

Cadmium pigment- 4 tablespoons

Linseed oil- 1 tablespoon

Grind the pigment dry a bit first on the mulling table.

You can get by with a 3.5:1 ratio if you are trying to save a bit.
