1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / another dirt painting! on: March 24, 2010 03:32:30 PM
Here's my newest painting made from natural pigments (clay, paprika, charcoal, henna, chalk) with egg yolk as a binder on wood. I'll take another picture when it's sunny out! It's hard to capture the correct colors Smiley

I've just gotten into making my own paint out of things found in nature and I have to say I'm hooked! The dry pigments I used in this painting were charcoal powder(black), curry powder(light yellow), green clay(sage green), dirt(brown), henna(light brown), and paprika(orange). There's a bunch of different binders you can use to make them into a paint consistency but I used egg yolk (used a lot in the old days- egg tempera) which seemed to work well. Not all of my pigments were ground super fine and I like the texture it adds!

Now I've been looking around the house to see what colors I can make next haha. Blue might be a hard one to find but I can always get it online from a company that sells natural pigments. I think the next color will be white using chalk or egg shells- if I can grind them fine enough that is Smiley
