  • Powars Red Ochre

    This is a few slabs of pay from the Sunshine mine Wyo. Modern man found copper and iron and I cant recall right now but alot of buildings and really neat modern history.
    There was/is a couple different places that paleo man dug some shafts and harvested Red Ochre.
    There is a great story of how it was found, please www and take a looksee, and help keep my facts straight.
    This is how it was explained to me.
    I used a rusted FeO2Eerr, (Joke, smile hard and editor read slow, good natured, fun) rusted I H harvester seat that, brand new had a cotton duck canvas style pad, common rusted seat.
    The Red Ochre is the dust, it feels like baby powder. Add in some bison fat and the paste will be greasy and leave a mark. (Keep smiling)
    I try to make pics of all but the greasy part.
    In the future, if you happen across an overgrowing Hillbilly that looks like Santa Sasquatch is smeared all over with clay grease and waves hello and barks out party time
    It is ME...

              Do not eat the Ochre, Fat! (And you should stop eating the rust as well!)😉

              Of course they need monies.
              It is cheaper than taking a loved one out for biggie sized big mac meal. IMHO
              they want to put up a simple kind of permanent shade structure cover. something? Read up IDK

                    In Peru the natives used achiote tree seeds for red face paint. There was another kind of tree there in the jungle that had a very tough but flexible bark. The natives used it for several purposes. It was a very strong rust colored dye they used for dying fabric (my hands looked stained for at least a week after touching it 😏). Also they used it to tie the beams together in their huts. When it dried it made a very strong lashing. Pictured is a hand woven cotton bag and a feather head dress that are dyed with it from the Caquinte people.

                      Was just thinking if natural achiote stains hands red for long time, what must synthetic Red Dye #5 do to our insides after we eat red velvet cake?!
