Stockmar Paint Mixing Tutorial

The video to the left offers a tutorial in how to mix the Stockmar paints for your class.  Sara provides instructions on proportions for diluting the paint in a large jar for your class, and how to fill the little jars the students receive. 

These instructions allow for more concentrated pigments in the bottom of the student’s jars, and more dilute pigment toward the top of the jar.  She also shows how to tilt the jars so students can access different strengths of pigment.
