Verdaccio became an integral part of the fresco painting, in which this color is used for defining the tonal values, forming a complete monochromatic under-painting. Often architectural details in frescoes are left in verdaccio without any additional color layers; a notable example is the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, where verdaccio under-painting can be clearly seen, left as is on all of the architectural details of the composition.
