The results of this evening work. I am learning to work a firmer mix for the pans so that there is less drying and hence less pigment shrinkage. The tubes load better with a wetter mix.
This one reminds me of peanut butter. It has a nice strong mineral smell.
It takes more effort to mull a firmer mix. Soupy mixes are dreamy to mull but what can one do them? Well, they could be used for putting up pigment for tempera.
Here's the view from my doorstep. It looked so pretty this morning that I had to go back for the camera. The yard is really tiny; 16mm is such a generous view. :-)
There were a couple of interesting (actually quite exciting) deliveries today. I can hardly wait to tell you all about them tomorrow! :-)
