Yep, just wood glue.

But what did they use traditionnaly to mix with pigments ?

Orchid juice. Or even just water sometimes, as there wouldn't have been much concern for permanence.

In fact, body painting in a way is a sort of test. If young men were being painted for ceremony and the paint quickly dried and flaked off rather than sticking nicely, the person was said not to be ready for whatever they were being prepared for!

Hi I am a newbbie here and have been looking to get hold of some more Ochre or powdered earth pigments,

I cant seem to find any arts supplier that does sell it does anybody have any specifics as to where to go on the Tinter Web (or in London as I work there) as to where I can pick some up from.


also how do I get a smooth paste as the Ocher I have used in the past I have ground down using a pesil and motar but I still get hard lumps of rock on the stick (which I dont actually mind as it gives a rustic type feel to it as I have only used it on sticks I have either made from blanks or had to strip back to bare wood for what ever reason)
Cheers

Stockie

Hi Paul

Im assuming that with the Morrisey on your posts you are Paul from Manchester that I met last year, If so a up to a fellow Northern monkey (as I live down south now).

I am intending to head to Taperly this year (havent bought a ticket yet as am skint wating till I get paid) so how are you and are you taking your missus there this year as you guys have now set up a president for getting the kettle on and making a brew when I get there.

I have worked on the stick I got off Matt still blummin heavy though but not as bad (both actually dont know if you remeber the plain wooly but blank I had there last year ) done some work on both of them and re painted on the Ocher I got there last year. Oh and by the way guys Char Coal mixed with water and PVA works well for black colours needs a couple of coats though

two strange american sounding blokes have hitched a lift down with me! I'm sure I'll find room for the kettle though! Then again maybe I'll just fit more beer in!

Hope to catch you down there

I sound distinctly Canadian Paul. I haven't heard Jason speak so can't comment on his accent. At least Jason and I do one thing properly that you don't - speak English!

Hi there

Salut Stockie

The more you grind the pigment the brighter and purer she looks .So you have to grind it in a very fine powder . And its a lot easier to produce a nice paste well its more like a gouache or tempera . A mix of wood glue and water is the way lots of traditional painter do it .you'll have to find the right mixt with each pigment .Some are stronguer than other .I,m sure there a place in London who sell those pigment otherwise you still have the net to order them .

Thats the only place i know in europe.
