pigments for lacquer

Post by blackalex1952 » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:22 pm

I use nitrocellulose lacquer and or shellac. I am wondering if dry solid pigment powders can be mixed in to these successfully. Also, sources of pigments in Australia. I'm right for dyes. -Ross

Most good art suppliers sell pigments. There is also a local manufacturer I believe.
