Making natural paint is a great way to add color to primitive bush craft projects. It is also a great way to make sure that you are able to find your way back if you are in a wilderness survival situation. Natural paints are made from sedimentary rocks that are soft enough to be ground into a fine dust. This dust can then be mixed with water, saliva, milk, or eggs to create a paint that can be used for a variety of projects.
The colors of natural paint are usually earth tones such as reds, greens, yellows, and even some whites/grays. To make the paint, simply grind the rocks into a fine dust and then mix with the desired liquid. Once the paint is made, it can be used to paint clubs, arrows, bows, atlatl, beads, and more. The paint can also be used to mark trails or directions in a wilderness survival situation.
When using natural paint for primitive bush craft projects, it is important to make sure that the paint is applied in a thin layer. This will help ensure that the paint does not crack or flake off over time. Additionally, it is important to make sure that the paint is completely dry before touching or using the item that has been painted.
Natural paint is a great way to add color and life to primitive bush craft projects. It is also useful for marking trails and directions in a wilderness survival situation. With some basic supplies and a little bit of time, anyone can make their own natural paint and use it for a variety of projects.
