        Pigment | Raw to Ready: Bentley

        This clip from Raw to Ready: Bentley focuses on prehistoric man's use of natural pigment to create cave drawings and how Cleopatra's famous eye makeup led to the development of synthetic pigments by the ancient Egyptians. In Victorian England vibrant pigment and styles were still obtainable by only the rich. An accident by chemistry student William Henry Perkin led to a discovery that revolutionized pigment variety and uses today, including the pristine paint job on Bentley automobiles.
