The fresco is a painting technique on a fresh area; we use powdered pigments dissolved with water alone, spread on fresh plaster.
The plaster, which should remain moist as long as it works, is laid out a little at a time, in the amount that the artist considers right to be able to paint in a day. The process of fresco can give great results, but it requires a perfect mastery of the technique and the ability to paint with great rapidity and security since it, unlike other techniques, admit no hesitations. After you have executed the fresco you wait until the plaster painting is dry. You paste it on the latter a canvas called “cencio” and tears it, removing it in such a way that the painting remaining is “reversed”. We then move on to the stage of “carry over” to transfer “positively” the painting. You paste a second canvas on the back of that torn, the glue melts, the first canvas comes out and the fresco remains transferred to the second. The method used is called “Calico” or “rip”.
Through this process we get authentic fresco on canvas. The finished fresco can be fastened on the frame and then hung like a painting, or sent without the frame to be pasted directly onto the wall or other support. Thanks to the craftsmanship of this process you can make frescoes in any shape and size.
