One advantage of powdered pigments is that they are significantly less
likely to be formulated with filler and dispersal agents, etc. as part
of the "retail sale" powdered pigment. Fillers and dispersal agents are
simply more likely to be added to retail tube paints.. The reasons are
relatively obvious.
