Cromwell’s Sunrise

Cromwell’s Sunrise is a warm golden yellow Wild Ozark Paleo Paint made from a stone of northwest Arkansas. This color began with a rock gifted to me by another northwest Arkansas artist. He saw it while out hiking and thought I might like to try making a paint from it.

I don’t have any sources here to make this beautiful color, so I was pretty happy to get that rock. It’s also from the Ozarks, just not from right here at Wild Ozark.

What an incredible color that rock made!

Since I only tried a small piece of it to test it out, I didn’t make very much paint from the first batch. The few that I got are included in a set of Paleo Mini’s. I’ll have these with me at the South x Southeast Art Tour, where I’ll be set up with the Wild Ozark booth at Terra Studios. It’s March 30-31. After that, I’ll upload any of them left to my online shop and the Etsy shop.

The bottom one is the one I’ve been using, so it’s not for sale, obviously. The trays are made from clay that I bisque fired in the wood-stove. No plastic. The colors vary from black, to gray, to almost white.
