today

it’s all yellow…

I’ve been looking into making paint from natural pigments… so as a warm up, today we made turmeric playdough.

The kitchen smells of the subcontinent and methinks the tablecloth will never recover… not to mention our clothes, the floor, and the colour that has absorbed henna-like into the palms of our hands (we look as if we’ve been applying a strange shade of fake tan)… but I kind of like the cast of that very particular shade of yellow that a teaspoon or two of spice made over our morning  – it’s turned out to be quite a yellow day…

How wonderful to languish in the idea, the physicality, the smell… of a colour.

– imagine how our paint manufacturing days might turn out?

I’m all pink with excitement!
