Home made paint, “Rusty Anchor”

Deb Clarke recently made some paint from rust off an Anchor. She calls the pigment “Rusty Anchor”.

Check out her FB photo album here; “Rusty Anchor”

From: deb Clarke;

Here’s the orange jellyfish in process.  reverse glass with silver, aluminum, rusty egg tempera, etc.  in process.  if you click the pic you can see the grains of rust.  my friend Paul Frontiero reminds me that “rust never sleeps”.  I wonder if this will develop a rust bloom.  very excited about this.  19×20″.
best,
Deb
ps: this will be one of the works in progress that i will bring to the Cape Ann Museum for my demonstrations on March 31 and April 1.
