Idea Gallery: Fresco 2

Artist: Lisa Agosti

"Fresco is a form of mural painting in which earth pigments are applied directly to wet lime plaster. The painting must be done quickly and surely, before the base has time to dry. The chemical reaction between the calcium hydrate and carbonic acid in the atmosphere fixes the painting and makes it insoluble and permanent. It is a very durable form of decorative painting for both interior and exterior spaces."
