What will you learn?
In this class, participants will learn how to make a lake pigment. These pigments can be used to paint almost immediately, or be strained and dried for later use. Making lake pigments is a wonderful way to make the most of a leftover dye bath and understand the chemistry of colour. Participants will learn the difference between dye and pigment, the proper way to handle and use chemicals used in this process, historical uses of pigments in manuscripts and various historical methods of extracting pigments. In addition, we will learn how to make wax crayons using these pigments. These are a wonderful way to make your own art materials, but also a safe and non-toxic option for children.
