I have experimented with making my own pastels this morning. I concocted the solutions for binding and now waiting for the experiment to dry and see if they actually work as pastel pigment to paint with. I tried natural yellow ochre (old womans paint) from cliff areas around the Milk River. Some red ochre and a mix of chalk with the red ochre and some black pigment with the red ochre. Now we wait to see if the binding solution is the right mix. If so I am off to the races!!!
