    “I love this book! It looks terrific and is set out very well.

    There is loads of information that is carefully

    and logically explained with plenty of tips”

    Explorations in Natural Paint will walk you through how to set up a studio working with natural pigments and non-plastic based home-made paint.

    Over the course of a year, I switched my art practise from factory-made, plastic-based acrylic to natural pigments and home-made milk paint. This book shares with you how I did it, my knowledge of natural pigments and binders (including my recipes) and the  tricks and techniques I learnt along the way.

    The information in this inspiring and practical book includes:

    – How to set up a natural studio.

    – Everything you need to know about natural pigments.

    – Options for making your own paint.

    – Step-by-step guides to making natural paints with binders like milk, egg and animal hide glue.

    – Where to source materials.

    – How to embrace the natural world in your creative practice.

      I love this book! It looks terrific and is set out very well. There is loads of information that is carefully and logically explained with plenty of tips and it’s very reasonably priced. Alison has put a lot of herself, time and thought into this book. It will be a resource to refer to many times.

      This book is exactly what I was looking for in terms of an introductory guide to nontoxic and natural painting. Alison’s step-by-step instructions, aided by numerous helpful photographs that illustrate the process, are clear and practical. She offers advice on how to approach art in terms of the media she is most familiar with (casein paint), and also explains alternative techniques she doesn’t employ often herself, but that might be useful to others with different circumstances informing their art practice. The book is short and sweet, succinct and a great value for the price. I’ll be highly recommending this to anyone interested in trying out natural painting.

      Hi Alison, I have just read your eBook and think it’s wonderful. I enjoy the sharing of your philosophy re avoiding the dreaded plastic etc as it’s something I share. The clear step by step instructions to making paint from pigment and binder have opened up possibilities. I am just delving into book making using my eco prints and I see future potential here to use natural paints in these, so thank you! Wishing you well in your practice and enjoying sharing your journey on IG. Much love k3n xxx
