Early Egyptian Painting

In ancient Egypt, color was highly regarded. Early Egyptians formulated paint from ground glass, semi precious stones, lead, earth, iron oxides and animal fats.
In everything from color-targeted healing rooms and artwork to body painting and tombs, the early Egyptians made full use of the colors available at the time: green malachite, red ochre, chalk white, charcoal black, yellow ochre and Egyptian blue (made from iron, copper oxide, silica and calcium).
