I got some wonderful presents for my birthday! My thoughtful family decided to club together and get me the following:

1 pre-cut square of Sheep parchment
1 pot of powdered Sandarac
1 pot of powdered Lapis Lazuli pigment
1 pot of powdered Vermillion pigment
I packet Gesso di Bologna
I packet Rabbit Hide Glue

I would love to paint a miniature on parchment, using real crushed Lapis, Malachite, Vermilion and Red Ochre with raised gilding using real gold on period recipe Gesso and gum ammoniac size and scribed with Oak Gall Ink!!!

And now I have all the ingredients!!

I feel a project for an A&S competition coming on!!
