Tea Tree

[Tea tree oil, ochres, green earth, silky oak gum, eucalyptus gall and black wattle bark ink on traditional gesso on 640gsm archival paper]


Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, is known to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It was one of the first alternatives I tested to replace traditional preservatives like clove or lavender. While it is very effective, it must be used in small amounts to avoid corrosion of the pigments.
