Powdered Dark Red Ochre is great for decorating any and all primitive crafts.
Primitive man has been using these same types of pigments to add color to cave walls, weaponry, pottery, clothing, and just about everything else since before recorded history.
Powdered ochre can be diluted in water, hide glue, or any number of different mediums. A thin (watery) hide glue solution mixed with a small amount of ochre is great for adding crest marks on your arrows that won't rub off or smear.
The intensity and brightness/darkness of the final dried color can be controlled by adjusting the amount of pigment used in the paint mixture. For example a dark yellow can easily be made into light brown if you add large amounts of pigment in relation to the amounts of liquid substrate used in your pain mixture. The color of raw powdered ochre does also change slightly after being added to a liquid medium.
Due to variations in computer monitors and photos, actual color may be slightly different than what you see on your screen.
