Infusions are a pigment powder with a difference. Part walnut crystal and part dye powder, the 2 particles dissolve in water at different rates. This allows you to control them in all kinds of ways depending on when you dry them and how much water you apply. For full on vintage tones, use water generously, and leave to dry. For intense colour, use a light misting of water, and dry with a heat tool quickly. Try gum arabic in your water for permanence, or apply with satin glaze to build depth.
