Lime Putty Paints in India

mixing pigments in lime putty, egg, clay, plaster and oil is such a refreshing way to decorate
instead of uniformly dispersed pigment particals you get a dazzeling mixture of various size pigments which refract light differently then modern emulsions. modern emulsions are predictable and bland when compared to hand mixed paints.
The pigment when mixed with various binders gives you different looks
Binders are chosen according to substrate that is going to be painted
what i love is the way light bounces off the large and small particals and the imperfection of it all
These samples taken on my trip to india show the intense colors we in this modern world are missing out on…..
