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...
