Fresco painting

Leave a comment

The fresco technique of painting involves the application of pigment to a wall surface covered with fresh plaster. While this process might sound fairly simple, it is actually quite complicated. It involves a series of chemical reactions between the materials, which must occur at the correct time in order for the fresco to set properly. Consequently, this technique requires great skill and timing on the part of the plasterer and painter.
