Color Making Research and Classes

This is a list of projects I am researching and documenting about colors medieval people might have used for painting, dying. and stuff.  As progress is made, items will
become links and go to the experiments and results.  I don't promise this will be a fast process or an up-to-date project.  I only have a few other things going on...!   ;)
