How to make acrylic paints with dry pigments

In fact, it is only with the organic pigments that you will have these problems and it is due to their density. Since these pigments are less dense than water: they float over it. Therefore they are almost impossible to disperse in this liquid.

Density: The ratio between mass (weight) and volume (space). 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 have an inferior density than the solvent we wish to use, in this case water.
