    TIP!
    The ten different colours of Art Aqua can be diluted and thus made ​​brighter. To achieve a very light pastel: 1.5 ml, equivalent to 20 drops, is poured into a refill bottle containing 80 ml of water. NB! The turquoise colour, which is the strongest in the kit is diluted with only 8 drops.
