Moreton Bay Fig

[Morton Bay Fig sap, Moreton Bay Fig leaf ink, green earth, Australian ochres, eucalyptus gall ink on traditional gesso on 640gsm archival paper]


The sap was collected locally from trees where the council had disturbed the roots after mowing. It is really sticky and after using a hybrid of tempera recipes that use fig sap and tree resins, the bay fig sap became a copper-coloured paint medium. I suspect it will last a lifetime.
