Domestic Liquids Project

Initial proposal:

I would like to investigate various aspects of colours found in everyday household – both naturally derived (fruit/vegetables/plants) and artificial (household chemicals, makeup etc).

These materials would be explored on the basic level as stand alone colours, their application as pigments, and furthermore through analysing their chemical make up by using method such as paper chromatography/colour separation.

The project will be initial research into the area, possibly raising more questions and opportunities for exploration rather than providing answers.
