Less than 2 worth - anyone making your ownpigments?



A painter gave me some powder pigments he made from the local earth around Lake Hartwell. They worked very well in my initial gum tests. Just wondering if anyone else has been making pigment for alt processes.

By the way, it was a lot more involved than just digging up some dirt. My friend enlisted help from the chemistry department, for instance.
