Copies of icons
We exclusively use high quality wooden materials such as linden, chestnut, walnut, white pine, cherry and others for woodworking and woodcarving. The necessary wood base rigidity is obtained by using wedge braces, dove tails, etc. Grounds or Gesso are also crafted using traditional methods and natural materials. We use crackled Gesso finishes for an antique aesthetic. Gilding is done with 22 karat gold and silver and painting is done with the classical technology of egg tempera. Other effects can also be incorporated using techniques such as glazes, Probaster, punches and more. We use commercial art varnishes as well as varnishes made in-house from natural resins.
