- One bag of dry pigment colors two bags of mix. Buddy Rhodes used to prefer liquid color because it was the best way to get uniform dispersion throughout a project. Traditional dry colors are proned to causing “starbursts” when trowelled, and it was hard to get them to dissolve completely. But technology has improved, and after a lot of testing they found a system that solves these problems. Ultra-Fine Pigments will make projects easier to mix without waste, easier to measure, and easier to reproduce. The new pigments are also more efficient to ship and to store.
