Remove the yolk from the egg white. I mixed it with a little bottled water.
Only add enough ochre for the job at hand. It can’t be rejuvenated once dry.
Let it settle and soak for a few minutes, I didn’t crush the ochre up too fine as I like the texture.
It works and applies just like paint
I only did dots
It looks very attractive just as a mix.
It was quite hard, a bit sorta rubbery.
Bit of a shiny sealed surface.
After 3 days could be scratched off with a pocket knife or fingernails
Colourfast though delicate, maybe needs a coat of 600 yr old type varnish?
If it is left alone in a gallery it should last a long time.
The Last Supper and Birth of Venus are both done with Egg Tempura...
