Hails from Germany
Little question from a foreign person.

Hey guys,
I'm rly sorry for making a threat just because of a little question, but I've got a problem. I'm from Germany and I'm quite interested in making my own oil paint, but I wanted to search some information about it on WC, but I don't know how to search without a certain term. searching with "making own paint" etc. gave me no results. So, how do you call that?

Greetz
Kai

Re: Little question from a foreign person.

your question doesn't seem like a threat at all. here is one thread.
go to the search this forum box in the main oil painting forum.
click on advanced search.
put in these two words "making paint" and leave the option of
titles only to limit the search.
you will get a return list of many threads with making paint in the titles.

Re: Little question from a foreign person.

Hello Kai,

maybe "grinding" , "mulling" might be the words you look for.

I found these threads:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=590983
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=327249
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=590982

and a few more there are for sure. There are a number of painters here experienced in making their own paint I think.

Re: Little question from a foreign person.

And as a final hint, try the "site" keyword in Google:
make own oil paint site:www.wetcanvas.com

The summaries that Google supplies have more information in them that the search results from the search engine within WetCanvas.

The US store for Kremer has several pages of recipes and information: http://kremerpigments.com/service/in...on-and-recipes

I would guess that the Kremer Pigmente international site has this and more, with a goodly amount auf Deutsch. http://kremer-pigmente.de/de --on the Kremer sites, you find things either through the search or via the sitemap.

Sid - I just realized that "threat" is how a German speaker would pronounce "thread."

Re: Little question from a foreign person.

You might also look at AMIEN.org http://www.amien.org/forums/ There is a section "Paint Making Procedures" that you might find helpful. And, welcome!

Re: Little question from a foreign person.

RedonneMoi, no need for sorry.

I remember in 12th grade someone in our German class putting "e" and "i" in the wrong order while trying to spell "shiess", "shoot" on the board, as we were trying to puzzle our way through Remarque's Drei Kameraden...
