Discover how to collect, process, and use pigments from the earth. Starting with the equipment and tools needed for gathering soils, the author takes the reader from the field to the studio where the processes of cleaning, sifting, and mulling result in beautiful colored pigments. Through recipes and illustrations, learn how to turn these pigments into a variety of artist mediums from water-based paints, to pastels and oil/ wax crayons, casein solutions, printmaking inks, and even spun into paper threads for weaving, stitching, and tying. This guidebook is a wonderful resource for all artists, craftspeople, journalers, and hobbyists, and those researching the historical tradition of artist mediums.
