How to make acrylic paints with dry pigments

In fact, it is with the organic pigmentss that you will have these problems and it is due of their low density. Since these pigments are less heavy than water: they float on top of it, and, as a result, they are almost impossible to disperse in to this liquid.

Density: The ratio between mass (weight) and volume (size). For example, a pillow made of feathers has a low density (low mass/large volume) and a lead ball has a high density (heavy mass/low volume). In our example, organic pigments are less dense than our solvent (water).
