The crackled finish made by braking it with your hands and re-assembling pieces on canvas for indoor/outdoor wall art.
Have you ever tried painting on a rough wall like we see in really old church houses and some big ancient edifices;
if you have tried you would realize it is not an easy work to do but the result when you finally must have pulled through is a splendid one.
The type of art you get from creating an art on rough walls is called Fresco.
Fresco literally means painting on a wall prepared with fresh wet lime;
it requires a lot of expertise and speed in working with the environment because once the lime gets dry the color pigments get trapped in the wall itself.
It is a very complicated painting technique to engage in as a hobby and demands a certain level of material, drawing and color theory mastery.
In this work, we will be discussing the ancient (true-Buon fresco), when work is done on wet, lime mortar/plaster – intonaco.
And Modern (fake-Secco or Mezzo-fresco) styles of Fresco and the final effect each has when carefully and expertly done. #fresco #frescoes #ancient #olenaart #kindle #kindlebook #howtopaint
