Il Libro dell' Arte

Just wanted to pass this link on while I had it open, http://www.noteaccess.com/Texts/Cennini/

It's the translation of an early Italian 15th century manuscript for painting art. It talks about how to make colours and brushes, and quills and how to get the different colours used.

Re: Sydney fabric stores

AW Fabrics, ph: 96236213. They're on Queen Street st Mary's. Wool is $15 but not much apparently.

there's also a little Korean fabric store in Liverpool, on Macquarie St, downhill from the Westfield that does wool for $7 - very thin though.
