8 Litres of Water (8.5 quart)
650g White Flour (23 oz)
2.5 kilo earth pigments or iron oxides (5.5 pounds)
250g Iron Sulfate (9 oz)
1 Litre Linseed Oil (1 quart)
100ml Black Soap or Colourless Dishwashing Liquid 3.4 fl oz
In a large metal recipient, bring 7 liters (7 qt) of water to a boil.
At the same time, mix the flour in 1 liter of water (1.5 qt). Pour the mix in the boiling water and let cook for 15 minutes while stirring.
Add the coloring pigments as well as the Iron Sulfate, and keep stirring for 15 minutes.
Add the double boiled Linseed Oil, and stir for another 15 minutes.
Add the liquid soap, stir, remove from the heat source and let the mix cool down.
The paint is ready to use. If it seems too thick or viscous, dilute it with water until you get the desired viscosity. Flour Paint is designed to use with a brush. It will be too thick to pop in a spray gun so be sure to bear that in mind.
It is recommended that you do not paint in the heat or direct sun. After applying your first coat, you should wait 24 hours before applying your final coat. It is also suggested that 2 years later you top up your paint. This will result in extending your paint for a further decade. It is also suggested that you do a test patch on the area you intend to paint to check results.
