Cave Painting

Post by grendel on Wed Nov 18, 2015 1:50 pm

Been researching and trying to make some stuff, came up with this kit.

The items
Prehistoric paint fixative made from animal gelatine.
Powdered Clay Paint Thickener
Shells for mixing liquid paint.
Brushes and pads made from natural grasses, horse hairs, feather and leather.
Prehistoric Pigment Crayons made from binders and pigments, including: lemonite, manganite, calcite, carbon, malachite and haematite. 


A couple of good links here,

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
