The main equipment required would be a kettle or kettles and a cowles mixer. Making paint is mainly about dispersion, so get some good formulations and follow them carefully. I you purchase pre-ground pigments as paste you should only be limited by the quality of the formulations.

Many paint companies started in someone's garage. I know one guy who makes small batches with his wife's blender. He makes paint as a hobby and sells it to local contractors.
