|My students making their own paint.|
Two or three years ago when I was getting up to speed again for teaching my paint making class I missed the best introductory Medieval paint making post.
It is the Medieval Yorkist's Eulalia Piebakere's adventures in "Making Your Own Paints: A Beginner’s Guide".
Just what you need to get started making your own paints.
Paint making is fun. It's very sensual. Enjoy the subtle texture variety you feel as you squish the pigments into the binder. Be a kid again messing around while combining the parts. Try it, you'll like it.
