The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 46
Mummy Bauxite is a warm spicy earth color that granulates with lovely visual texture and a rusty tone.
Mummy was a very popular organic pigment in the 18th and 19th centuries, that was thought to have been made from ground Egyptian mummies. This iron rich pigment, unlike the old world color, is extremely lightfast, and low-staining. I found Mummy Bauxite to lift beautiful, layer well and granulate interestingly.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
