How to make watercolor & gouache

Just like when you are making oil paints, you will need a thick glass and some spatulas. Lay the desired amount of dry pigment on the glass, make a hole in the center and add some gum Arabic solution with some water.

The more gum Arabic solution is added, the shinier the watercolor will be. However, if the paint crackles it is generally because too much gum Arabic has been used.
