I went type A exactly one time while mixing a custom paint color for the upstairs at the old house. It was a big room and I knew it would take two gallons, so I actually measured the paint components. And it worked – I got two gallons of paint that exactly matched each other! (However, if I ever need to do that again, I’ll just use a five gallon bucket do the usual add-color-til-it-looks-good method.)
The pigment composition is a mixture of high quality white Portland cement, marble powder, fine sand, and natural mineral color pigments. The individual patterns are made by manually applying separate pigments, one by one, in a handmade copper mold. This incredibly delicate and skilled process can only be performed by highly trained artisans with many years of experience creating handmade encaustic cement tile.
