Pigment expertise

From: David Cottier-Angeli <info>
Date: Monday, September 24, 2007
Most recently I have been presented to a old friendly man that spend
most of his life making and using mineral and also organic pigments.

Soon our meeting revealed that he will be quite willing to share his
invaluable field knowledge of manufacturing pigments with raw
chemicals and plants. We must emphasise that he his holds very
ancient recipe books.

Now this nice Italian-speaking man is getting physically tired, but
quite willing to give his knowledge to anyone friendly enough to
listen to him in order to write down this precious know-how.

He is now in posses of massive pigment stocks (hundred of them,
clean and in fine powdery form).

They will be a great chance for any interested scholar to spend
hours collecting practical information according to his physical
strength. Unfortunately it is not going to be a three years field

The pigments are not to be forgotten as his son is seriously
planning to discard them in a proper recycling station.

Anyone interested in this knowledge that is shifting away to our
conservation community may contact:
