Dang it these art supplies are Expensive!!
Geeezzzz! My oil painting tubes start at about $7.99 a tube all the way up to $20.00 a tube. Did you know that the first pigments used in painting (many moons ago) were ground from earth, minerals and organic matter? Yeah…. and they would mix it with oil, egg or water to form a paint. Most paints today are made chemically and have a longer life and are more permanent. Hmmmm…..let me go see what I have in my kitchen and grab some dirt :).
