Lesson 5 –MPO and Pigments
Mastering color saturation using MPO™ is key to controlling the transparency, translucency and luminosity properties of each layer applied. Thus whether you are using dry powdered pigments or oil based paints remember to add your pigment/paint in small incremental quantities as to attain the desired effect while not over saturating.
