      It really depends on the paint! Some need no dilution, others a lot. You
      need to experiment, and sometimes as in the case with cadmium reds, to get
      the proper intensity you need MORE water, not less, because it is a heavy
      pigment which may weigh more than the size can bear. it can start to sink a
      little and you won't even see it, yet the paper will pick up a pale liver
      color where you see bright red on the size. If this happens...dilute a
      little more to allow it to float better...
