Q: Can I add dry pigment to lacquer to color it?
A: In theory, yes. In practice, it is almost impossible to get pigment powders to disperse uniformly in liquids. When we add them in the industry we use tools specifically designed for forcing pigments to combine with liquids, such as ball mills and high shear mixing blades. Unless you do some formulating on the side, you probably don’t own these machines, and you will find that trying to either stir most pigments into lacquer, or incorporate it with a drill bit mixer, will be an exercise in frustration. In addition to mixing tools, formulators often incorporate dispersal and suspension agents into the mix to keep the pigment from settling too quickly to the bottom of the container, and allowing it to remix easily. Odds are you don’t have access to those ingredients either.

Gentle reminder: A modest donation to this finishing blog can keep it going to help others. Thanks!
