Wallace Seymour - Natural Paint System - Gum Tempera - Bright Orange Ochre - Natural Earth

The raw material for these paints may be either from a historic quarry source, or be a by-product (i.e. not the main activity of the quarry).

For example, some of the ochres are from Britain using reclaimed raw material from the coal mining industry. The raw material has been cleaned, is free of contaminates and thereby recycled. Some raw materials used are effectively ‘waste’ in quarrying terms and normally would go for landfill – and are often used as ‘fill’ for road/rail embankments and other landscaping purposes.

These paints involve the identification of useful colours and careful extraction, washing, sieving, drying of the material.

Bright Orange Ochre and Bright Orange-Yellow Ochre are derivatives of Travertine Marble – the coloured material is washed out of the white marble and then processed into pigment.

Dilute with water only. On drying, the colour is fixed and permanent. Apply to any art paper or gessoed panel.
