Default storing pigment as paste

I was just reading through the 'how to' guide on the website, and I see it says the pigment should be mixed with water to become a stiff paste before mixing this paste with the egg. I know the egg tempera paint cannot be stored (you make as much as you need to paint with) but what about the water/pigment paste? Do I make that up in a very small quantity as well or can I make it in a larger amount and store it? If it dries out will it just revert back to powder pigment again?
