Separation of the tint in house paint
« on: February 26, 2021, 09:08:52 AM »
Hi
I am new here , and as a home project I was wanting to separate the tint ( which is what make the colour in paint ) from house paint , low sheen wall paint , wall paint is a water based paint . I noticed when you leave a paint can sit for 2 months , the tint falls to the bottom of the tine and needs to be shaken before use.
so what if I could let a can site there for 3 -4 months and collect the paint out and leave the tint behind . but don't want to wait 4 months . what would be another way of doing this ?

Tint, or pigment?
