Cave Art Kit


A selection of four powdered ochres and earth pigments that are of a type used by the prehistoric cave painters (red ochre, yellow ochre, purple ochre and white clay), charcoal chunks (made from English willow charcoal), a red ochre drawing stick (similar to a chalk pastel, made here in the workshop) and an information leaflet. We've photographed all the pigments out of their packets so you get an idea of the quantities - these shells aren't included. All of these are packed in a presentation box, which makes a good gift!

These ochres are lightfast and permanent, and can also be used in many other ways. We've used red ochre mixed with linseed oil for coating our yurt frame, and we use red ochre mixed with a colourless wood wax for our drum frames.
