ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE

 

NATURAL PIGMENTS PAINTING - BELMONTE

 

The pigments are finely ground substances that provide the colors necessary for the completion of paintings. Before the existence of industrial paints, natural pigments were used.

These may be of mineral origin (lands and rocks) or organic origin (vegetable or animal). These substances were ground until they had the consistency of a colored powder.

To carry out the paintings pigments were mixed with natural binders that provided consistency and durability. We will experience some techniques such as egg têmpera, the use of arabic gum, oil and rabbit glue.
