Creating A Cave Painting
Updated: Jun 2
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Cave paintings were created by mixing together different coloured rocks, charcoal, animal blood, and berries.
Step 2: Make Your Paint
These ingredients would then be ground up into a paste using liberal application of spit or animal fat.
Step 3: Start Painting
Finally the paint could be applied to the wall by hand, a brush made from animal hair or sprayed on with a hollowed out bone. Give us a tin of Dulux any day!
Now put your knowledge to the test by creating your own Cave Painting with our Stone Age Craft Activities.
