Paint Chemistry, what is paint?


(Welsh D) #1

Not quite sure where this should really go, but as the following article covers all of the paint spectrum, for oil to water, I have posted it here.

I started to think about, just what is ‘Paint’, as the term cover’s such a wide topic, then there was ‘How is it made?’ what is in there?, pigment, light reflectance etc.

Paint chemistry is a dark art that is not talked about, except by men in White coats, in lab’s.
So having looked around for some answers to this, I came across this .pdf http://philipmarshall.net/pdf/turner_paint_6-9_12.pdf

So, sit back, and discover just what, is in that tin of ‘Paint’.
