Hello and Happy Mothers Day to all those hard working mums out there!
This week has been a journey of knowledge of colour! I've learned so much about dyes, pigments and lakes! I have started making a new paint for Tiny Land which would be dense enough to paint onto stones and sticks, but is great for kids! I've struggled to get paint like this for my own kids which is safe and mostly natural.
We picked stones at the beach on Saturday when visiting Nanny for Mother's Day and are painting markers for our vegetable beds.
My test so far is really good.
Next week I am going to write a bigger piece on colourants and uses..so if you're an artist or dye yarn, or clothing, or make cosmetics, or are just curious..I hope to be able to help you.
In the meantime I offer you a Rainbow Buddha bowl recipe! Here are photos of mine, and I hope you enjoy having fun with it!
