Description
First I'll discuss the medieval sources that explain how to make this color. Then I will be using a mortar and pestle to crush blue Iris flowers, squeeze the liquid from them using another piece of linen and saturate other pieces if linen that have been scoured and impregnated (thoroughly cleaned then soaked and dried) in a 10:1 solution of rock alum, Potassium aluminum sulfate. If there's time I can show how to use finished clothlets for painting with water and prepared gum Arabic This class will be recorded http://scientistsscroll.blogspot.com/2016/10/iris-green-2016.html A blog article about doing this in 2016 which contains a link that explains how to "scour" the linen first. http://scientistsscroll.blogspot.com/2016/03/iris-for-pigment-references.html And this is a blog article that contains all of the medieval sources that discuss making iris green. This class will be recorded
