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.
