Put some of the medium onto a palette pan. Add a little tempera powdered pigment to the mixture.
Stir the powdered milk medium and the tempera powdered pigment gently with your paint brush on the palette pan until it is smooth. Add a little more powdered milk medium to make the color lighter or a little more of the tempera powdered pigment to darken the color.
Use water to thin the paint to make the color lighter or the paint more transparent.
Wash your brush out with water to change colors or when you are finished painting.
