Oh hey guys x
Extract 'The Nix' by Nathan Hill about the Chauvet cave painting, some of the oldest paintings ever found 'The really interesting thing is what happened when they carbon dated the place. They found pictures in the same room painted six thousand years apart. They looked identical.'
So ugh I am so glad lockdown is sort of easing. Its nice to finally start doing stuff with our friends. One of my friends came round and we did some cave painting. I basically found this craft kit in my cuboard which we got from a cave in France called Lascoux. Anyway considering it had been in there for ages I decided to do it when my friend TJ came round.
So yeah we did some powder painting. I don't think either of us were particularly enthralled by the activity. I started banging out knowledge about cave painting and we watched some short documentaries while we did it. I went to the woods with him and placed the little octopus (top left corner) down, but apparently when my friend went a week later it had been taken.

On another day I made candles with TJ. It wasn't the most relaxing craft, you sort of have to be quite quick and from the results you can tell we buckled under the pressure. I feel like my second attempt is going to be pretty good, I think I've worked out what not to do. So yeah really fun. I've made candles before with my sister but they were in jars and not pillar candles, you can read here. I so want to have another attempt at these. Anyway its been really fun doing these activites.
Lots of love ruby x
