Eggshell White is a beautiful, opaque warm white for water-based media including watercolors and gouache, as well as painting grounds and pastels. Chicken eggs are an age-old source of the pigment, recognized today as calcium carbonate. Join Natalie Stopka in a live online demonstration of pigment processing, during which we’ll discuss how the artisans of centuries past took advantage of the limestone cycle to develop studio materials. Together we’ll observe how the physical, optical, and metaphorical properties of Eggshell White make it a wonderful addition to the artist’s natural palette. Q+A will follow Natalie’s presentation.
This demonstration will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
