Settling happenned because gravity forces that pulling down the heavy pigments toward the bottom part of the container. Physically, settling is depending on viscosity of the paint. The less viscosity of the paint will result in faster settling phenomena. However, the higher viscosity will slow down the process but if given more time, settling can also happen.

Below listed all the factors that can influence settling phenomena :

  1. Viscosity of the system
  2. Density of the pigments
  3. Container size
  4. Pigmentation of the system
