Painting - Tempera,wood Panel
ICON OF SAINT GEORGE
The icon is handpainted on wood panel with tempera.
The wood panel has been prepared by gluing a piece of cloth to it, then several layers of gesso have been applied. When the gessoed panel has dried completely, the surface has been carefully sanded and polished to a marble-like smoothness. The board is now ready to paint on.
The icon is gilded with gold-like metal leaf, and then the paint layers have been applied, beginning with the darkest underlying colors and finishing with the lightest ones.
NOTE: If you'd like gold leaf to be used for the gilding of the icon, please contact me to add a listing -- $25.00 for A5 and A4 formats.
To protect the image against dust and water it has been varnished with several layers.
NOTE: This order is for an icon made to order and will ship 2 weeks within payment. Please note that the icons are handpainted and every image is unique (there might be slight differences b/w the image you see here and the icon you'll receive).
