Carmen's art work!

In order to make the paintbrush, I used the stem of a fibrous plant for the handle and some leaves from a relative of the onion family. The paint is mixed from coconut oil as the medium, and I used red Virginia dirt as the pigment. I think my mixture was off, for when I tried to paint it onto the rock, it was much too oily and hardly any dirt stayed on the rock. Next time, I will try using less oil, and possibly a different kind of dirt, or even some crushed flowers for pigment.
