make clay plaster and lime paint...

i love to make my own plaster and paint...have been doing this for many years... learned from my two decorative painting mentors in lyons, france...

i will be teaching this class at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina:

Nature Studies, Painting
July 12-18, 2009
Instructor: Rebecca Parsons
Tuition: $512.00
Come play in the North Carolina clay as we explore the lost art of paint making. We’ll dig the dirt around campus, grind and mull it to create our own earth pigments, and use it (and other natural things) to make paint. Then enjoy the rewards of using these “green” paints to create earthen masterpieces. Leave with the knowledge and skills to create paint in a variety of media: oil, watercolor, tempera, and more. Some experience is needed in any paint media—mainly, the know-how to load brushes.
