Thereof, what does base paint mean?
A base is a paint medium specifically manufactured for mixing colors. Typically, base 1 is for pastels, 2 for slightly darker, on to base 4 which is used for intense darker colors. Aside from different formulations for each base, base 4 allows more room in the can for the addition of tinting colors than base 1.
Beside above, what is the difference between accent base and medium base paint? Typically deep base and medium base are used as part of mixing in the colours. Some of the assorted paint bases offered by paint manufacturers include: white, pastel, light, medium, deep and clear. Medium base creates a colour between light and dark while Deep base produces a more darker colour of paint.
Similarly, you may ask, can you paint base without tint?
Light base paint has more “white solids” and is therefore less translucent because it is intended to be used to create light opaque colors. That being said, if you are looking into a can of base and see white and think it is the same thing as white paint you will be sadly disappointed.
What does it mean when it says paint must be tinted?
A tint base must have tint added. No tint means the paint will be almost see thru. If you add too much colorant the paint won’t dry correctly among other things. Tint bases are formulated to accept the extra colorant needed to make the darker colors and have very little coverage properties without the colorant.
