pigment particle size

Can a "homogenizer" grind pigment down to a suitable particle size for foundations or other color makeup?  Do you always need a roller mill? What are the alternatives?


  • I’ve never heard of using a homogenizer but it doesn’t mean you can’t. I’d wait for other replies. 

    As as far as alternatives, ball mills are another common option. Google should help with an exhaustive list of pigment grinding options. 
  • If you are just doing it at home you can just use a coffee grinder, I've used the Sunbeam one touch usually for herbs and beans.
