It is a lot easier in today’s world to obtain inexpensive finely ground pigments, and consequently a lot faster to prepare pigment pastes for fresco painting.
Buon Fresco Painting Foundations Vol. 3 – Fresco Pigments & Paint DVD video introduces the student to the foundational principles and techniques of preparation and use of FRESCO PIGMENTS & PAINT (natural earths, oxides, mineral and lime-safe synthetic pigments) for True (Buon) Fresco Painting. Topics illustrated include the step-by-step process of selecting/testig and storing of classic and contemporary pigments for fresco filmed in real time without omissions. Student will be able to see exactly how long each step takes and what tools and methods each requires. iLia Anossov (fresco) guides the student by thorough and clear demonstration of the foundations of pigments and preparation of paint relevant to any size fresco.
Buon Fresco Painting is the unique painting method where only the vehicle (water) is needed to prepare the paint because the surface itself (wet plaster) acts as a binder via the process of carbonation (re-absorption of CO2).
Ca(OH)2 + CO2 → CaCO3 + H2O
During this process as Calcium Hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) absorbs Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the air, Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) forms around pigment particles applied/placed onto the surface of the freshly laid lime (calcium hydroxide) plaster.
