Adventures with Natural Paint - episode 5

Mission completed, although we decided to buy 5 litres of Deep Vanilla Earth Born Emulsion instead of the claypaint. The emulsion was chosen because Greener Living in Southsea had a deal on, that made the coloured emulsions work out to about the same price as Crown emulsion per litre.

The emulsion is quite thick stuff and the main ingredient other than water seems to be chalk, although I suppose the ingredient mix may differ depending on colour chosen? The emulsion has some interesting properties in that it appears to not cover very well initially and then when it dries it becomes much more opaque and you realise it has covered quite well. Overall the results are fine, it will be interesting to see how the paint performs over the years.
