All 7 ochre colours...

off White, Orange and Coral
all used for painting.
....My beautiful palette....
The Orange, Lilac and Coral are rare
the Orange is very rare and I only have about 30 kilos left. Lilac I have about 60 kilos...when it’s gone I can’t get any more.
All 7 colours are $150 in the round containers.
(The Lilac, Orange and Salmon are $300 per Kilogram.....a kilo will cover about 4 sq. metres solid...enough to last an artist maybe 5 years
the Red, Yellow, White and off White are the usual $100 per kilo - $50 per half kilo.)
But all 7 in the round containers above are $150.
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...
