Making Oil Paint by hand!

March 10th 7-9pm- Oil Paint Making demo at the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell, taught by your very own Jamie Ribisi (That’s me!)!

Ever wonder what goes into making a tube of oil paint? Come and participate in a hands-on demonstration where you will learn how to make your own oil paint from scratch! Discuss the different properties of various oils and what would work best for you as an artist. Making your own paint can save hundreds of dollars a year on supplies and is a technique that is easier than you think! 

Come watch, learn, ask questions, and leave with all the knowledge you need to start making your own paint!

This event is free and part of the Art Talk series held at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St, Hallowell. Sponsored by the Savings Bank of Maine.

Today I made a tube of oil paint in preparation for this demo that I’m going to be giving!  I’ve been making some of my own oil paint for some time now, it’s such a great treat to use paint that you’ve made by hand!  I’m going to be making a PDF tutorial on this, as well, which will include lots of resources of where to buy the supplies and how to save money.  I’ll post it here once it’s ready– of course!….
