Embera Puru, Darien Rainforest, Panama.
Some Embera and Wounan families paint in solid blocks of black and create designs with thick, bold lines. The depth of the color depends on the preparation of the dye. As the jagua
juice oxidizes it turns black. Often they will boil the juice to thicken
it. Once applied to the skin, the oxidization process continues and the
designs get darker over the first couple days.
