    How do you grind lead white? It seems to float on the surface of the water.

  • EditDeleteModerator AnswerYou can always start by adding ethanol which will cut the surface tension and then add water while grinding. Much of the alcohol will evaporate out and the residual will help to stem mold growth if you are keeping the pigment paste around for a while.
