Here is a recipe that many street painters I know use. It does take some practice to get the recipe exactly the way you want it. I use powder pigments from Daniel Smith, Sinopia and Kremer. This recipe can yield a few hundred chalks, especially if you double the emulsion recipe. If you don’t use all of the emulsion when you are finished, you can store it in air tight containers for future use. I keep my dry pigments in plastic bins for easy storage.
