When used with powder pigments to make up paint the result will be a very tough coating difficult to scratch with a coin. Some powders are harder to mix than others. Fluorescent powders seem to be the hardest. Always add water to the powder to make up a thick smooth paste. Use as little water as possible or it will affect the viscosity of the paint and its ability to hold the pigment in suspension. Never try mixing powders directly with the glaze. If you are finding the powders hard to mix into the water due to the surface tension then add a drop of Methylated Spirits or washing up liquid. Always do a test area before using and try to ensure good drying conditions to avoid any blooming
