What materials did the Aurignacians use to make their paint? (2019/2019) by Fanny Le BagousseGrotte Chauvet - UNESCO World Heritage Site
Where did Aurignacians get their paint from…
A. A fine arts shop or B. Nature
The correct answer is…
They chipped off and ground down red, yellow, or black pieces of rock containing iron.
They mixed the resulting powder with water to make it either runny or thick, depending not only on the paintings they wanted to produce, but also the type of rock they would be painting on.
Animal fat could be added to form an effective binder, giving the final product a specific consistency.
