Here is my natural dyes thickend paste

I made osage orange, cochineal and logwood pastes with the idea that they were the nearest eco extracts I had to the primary colours. I did find mixing to be difficult. I just could not get anywhere near to a green. I also just made the screen printing thickness with the idea that I could water down anything that I might want for painting and that screen printing/stamping is what I would probably do the most. Natural dye extracts do not adhere well to wooden block prints and hand made stamps need to be sanded to give a texture on the foam. Foamies work great so I will probably just go with them
