Middle Ages Painted Techniques
Techniques used for reducing skin to a blank canvas include:
• To remove spots, lick an amethyst and rub the slobbery stone over offending areas.
• To remove freckles, boil oatmeal and vinegar together and smear it on. Alternatively, if you were out of porridge, you could use bull’s or hare’s blood.
• To eradicate redness, apply cucumber or strawberry juice.
• To soothe sunburn, use the squeezed juice of the waterlily.
The potency of all such unguents could be increased by the application of a plaster/band-aid made from sheep’s leather.
