Since this question is asked so often in different online forums and on Facebook, I thought, I would put together a practical, rough guide to medieval paint applications for all kinds of paintwork.

Before I start, I recommend to have a look at the literature recommendations at the end, which are in my opinion essentials if you want to work on the topic (some I have in a german translation, but I am sure you can find a good english one easily).

On the mixtures: In painting, there are no fixed rules. Every painter finds his own mixtures and recipes for the particular task at hand. It is definitely something that needs time to get experienced in. I will show you some basic mixtures and you can go on from there.
