Q: I live in Brazil and I'm a frequent reader of Re-Nest. Congratulation on your inspiring work! We are planning to make some natural wall paint to decorate our bedroom. We collected a lot of annatto seeds, but now it's hard to find how to use them. We're thinking of using some tree oil to get the colour out of the seeds. But how to mix it to paint? Do you have any ideas? Help!
