Has anybody tried making any? Looks like just adding some pigment to BLO, thinning it down a bit...

am I missing something before I buy some pigment?

I haven't made any, but used the all back white. To be honest, I've been disappointed with the results. It went chalky in a couple of years and greyed in colour. I've had to rub it back after 5 years and redo. And it's a fussy pipper as far as temperature and drying time goes. Seems no better than modern paint, unless I'm missing something.
