"You make your own paint?"

"I like the way it looks compared to store bought. Has a different texture and gives the whole canvas a different sort of-" 

He pauses and blushes, smiling.

"That's my hobby, I suppose."

Permalink

"That's really cool."

Permalink

"You like art then?"

Permalink

"Yeah. I don't do art all that much, that's my sister, but I know things about it and I certainly appreciate the results."

Permalink

"Maybe I can show you some of my work sometime. What sort of art does your sister do? Wondering if I'll measure up."

Permalink

"She does more 3D than 2D stuff, actually. Pottery, carving various materials, a little metal stuff, some jewelry...she's pretty miscellaneously craftsy."

Permalink

"Craftsy. Sounds like it. Definitely showing me up there."

Permalink

"Rich parents help," she admits. 

Permalink

"I can imagine. Sadly, I am without such things. But it forces me to be creative with what I have. I can think of worse things."

Permalink

She applauds. "I can think of much worse things. Making your own paint is awesome."

Permalink

"Bit messy, but that's the fun part."

Permalink

She throws an arm over her face dramatically. "Oh no, oh woe, you have triggered traumatic flashbacks of a childhood full of paper mache."

Permalink

He laughs. "I'm a horrible horrible man. Paper mache was a bane of all our childhoods. The glue. Forgive me."

Permalink

"I am merciful. You are forgiven."

Permalink

He clutches his chest dramatically in relief.

"Don't know what I would have done it you hadn't. Throw myself off a cliff, maybe. Onto something soft."

Permalink

Giggle. "I passed an appropriately short cliff on my way here, if you ever meet someone less forgiving than me."

Permalink

"I'll take note. Have you found what you were looking for? I'd offer to help, but you probably have more knowledge on whats useful than I."

Permalink

"I've found most of it--I have a list, if you want to look," she adds, taking a folded slip of paper out of her pocket. 

Permalink

He walks over to her and shows her his hands. They're covered in red stains.

"Got a bit enthusiastic before, better not touch."

Permalink

"Fair enough," she says, and reads off the list. 

Permalink

"Sure you didn't just snatch one of my sister's lists?" He laughs. "I can show you where most all of that is, might even run into her on the way."

Permalink

"--Very sure. Your sister's lists look like this?"

Permalink

"Very close. I've been sent off on enough plant fetching errands to know them by heart."

Permalink

"--Huh. Okay. Well, I bow to your superior knowledge of the area."
