earth + color: the pigment project

earth + color: the pigment project creates communities through color + geographic location. it began as a collaboration with Abigail Losli to document earth + mineral pigments + dyes we come into contact with on a daily basis. journals are available online as free downloads to be assembled into your own handmade book or used as individual pages. 

the customizable book has numerous options for users to organize the journal. sort by: color | elevation | habitat | season | other. the structure of book and the project is direct and seems simple, which hopefully makes it practical, less intimidating, and truly accessible. information is included about color, creating paint from raw pigment, and sustainable + alternative collection methods.

individual pages are available for classrooms of students or other groups to document a pigment profile of a specific geographic location and create one book together. this project is open to anyone interested natural pigment. we love when users bring back their finds to the online community through pigment submissions in an interactive map.
