Decorate a shield as Koorie people have done for thousands of years, using traditional ochre paints.

Painting with ochre is one of the world’s oldest forms of artistic expression.

Grind your own pigment, decorate a shield and express your own personality, using the same colours Koorie people have used for over 2,000 generations.
