Indian-miniature painters of the Kangra school used brushes so fine that they were sometimes made of a single hair. A painter of Indian miniatures would often apprentice for ten years before he was allowed to pick up a brush. The colors used by this school of artists were made of such strange substances as crushed beetles, ground laps lazuli and blood.

What do you suppose the apprentices did for ten years? And how long would it take them to actually learn how to paint after they were allowed a brush?

It's a good question. Maybe they got to practice brush strokes? And mixing up the ingredients to make each color perfect?

And aaaages. Has to be.
