Icons from the Holy Land!
The icon of the Resurrection of Christ ,hand painted hot colors directly on solid wood
Board is polished and slightly curved
Not primed at all! Using its original technology,
based on the method of applying hot colors, like encaustic method, but the paint layer is much thinner:Pigments powder are melted and mixed to the desired colours and shades
and in the hot state is applied to the hot Board.
Artistic brushes aren't used, the tool can withstand any
temperature, so no brush marks.
The pigment is practically fused into the wood and becomes one with it
To protect the wood from rotting at the end the varnish is applied in several layers until completely absorbed.
All these difficulties need only to extend the life icon for the ages, so that people could pass from generation to generation.
