Jaipur, India - Natural Dyes, Paints and Colours
In this Planet Science resource, an introduction on natural and synthetic dyes leads on to activities in which students devise an experiment for making a natural dye and testing its colour fastness. A feature on the Indian painter Shammi Banu and the techniques he uses to use paints made form natural sources like his ancestors is used as background to a further activity in which students attempt to make paints from natural sources and change their colours using acid or alkali.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
