Painting Techniques


On Canvas, Walls and Boards

Frescoes or Fresco is a very ancient painting technique known since Minoan Civilization (1500 B.C.) and it is executed upon freshly laid lime plaster. Water is used as the vehicle for the pigments to merge with the plaster, and with the setting of the plaster, the painting becomes an integral part of the wall and the colors last longer.
This technique needs a very quick execution because as soon as the pigments get in contact with the plaster they get immediately absorbed.

Acrylic, Tempera, Oil

on Canvas, Boards, Mural, Furniture, Doors and other surfaces

ACRYLIC PAINTING is a young painting technique. Colors are made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. This is a very fast-drying paint and it needs a very quick execution.

TEMPERA PAINTING consists of colored pigments mixed with a water-soluble minder medium. This technique has been found on Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Latin America art works and decorations.

OIL PAINTING is a very ancient painting technique using pigments suspended in a drying oil. Marco Vitruvio Pollione (who lived between 80 and 15 B.C.) was one of the main connoisseurs of this technique.

Watercolor painting

on Canvas and paper surfaces

Watercolor is a very common and extremely old painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments mixed with a water-based solution. The main characteristic of this painting style is its lightness and expressiveness. Since the Renaissance Watercolor became an essential tool for all the great masters of art.

Grisaille painting

on Glass

Grisaille” is a French term which generally indicates monochrome decorations or paintings. It was also used on the internal side of stained glass windows to create pictorial effects (facial features, light and shade, details) that was otherwise impossible because of glass color uniformity.
This technique consists of mixing a liquid solution with glass powder and some minerals as Iron oxide or copper. Depending on the type of mineral the grisaille color shade can be green, brown or black.
After laying the grisaille the artist usually scratches and removes little parts in order to give the desired effect and then he finally put the slabs to the vitrification process.
