Hi, I need help with a few questions for a college course I am taking. After viewing an online tour at the British Museum, I was wondering if anyone would have an opinion on the way cartonnage cases were painted. What was the paint made from? Did certain colors mean anything or have a higher significance?

Here is a link to the site: http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore/online_tours/egypt/mummy_the_inside_story/the_painted_cartonnage_case.aspx

Thanks!
Mandy
