Rando 5: Chuck

Here's a paintin', I painted it with paint. The paint that I used was paint.

Look at him, a nomad, nothing but his boots and his shadow. woah. deep. Like a modern day Picasso ova' 'ere.

Rando 5: Mike

in the spirit of "Nomadic life" i tried to make all my paints instead of using any store bought ones. i like this picture because you can see my failed hulk hogan wood carving at the top. hey lil guy. it's okay, your tortured existence will end soon enough. just go to sleep.

in the corner of my little stairwell area was a bunch of fine dirt kinda shit. i figured that'd be a good pigment to try. i read that mixing pigment with egg yolk was a good way to make some kinda paintish thing.

i also wanted to try to make a blue reduction sauce, so i grabbed the blueberries out of my dried berries blend. this was all I had really, fresh bluebs would've been way better.

heatin up da blueberries


plus dirt

equals yolk dirt

smashin up dried blueberries

here's the mix of yolk and dirt. it made a sort of greenish mud. figured i could try painting some shit while the blueberries still reduce.

oh yeah I also just painted with my fingers, cuz nomadic life.


here's the first reduction of blueberries. it came out kinda purpley pink, so i said fuck it and threw them back in the pot.

i also found some old jelly i had and tossed that in the pot to get a real purple color.

way more purps

here's the purple added. you can tell it's really forming now into a "Mike has no concept of how to paint things" kind of motif.

oh yeah i also grabbed some pollen and reduced that. i added some water, and old bay, and then a buncha egg yolks and some mustard. 

the result was an orangish color. i nearly barfed three or four times while painting with this because it smelled so fuckin bad. i'm not smart. i also don't want to use that pot anymore now.

here's the "finished" painting which still has wet yellow mustard crap on it. i'll probably hit it with a few coats of spray polyurethane, so it doesn't rot away/smell like butts. with more time and more research it'd probably be pretty cool to make pigments from berries and flowers and then turn them into paints. yeah, probably. 

I don't know what do you want to eat?

oh this place only has one star, forget it.

I'll cut up the vid one day, but for now enjoy pics that my video camera automatically takes every 2 minutes or so.
