Red: Genuine Dragon's Blood

10g Genuine pigment powder (granules) sourced in Florence, Italy. An exotic tree resin with a rich history of use from being burnt as an insence, in artist paint and as an additive to varnish. Soluble in lacquer thinners.


Being hard to get in Australia, I don't work with this resin often but it makes a wonderful addition when adding layers of colour/pigment history to a work. I love having it in the collection because of its wonderful legacy in human history and storytelling. There is the origin story in which the trees sprouted from the drops of blood shed by a dragon while it fought an elephant.
