2020, gold plated, egg tempera, vinyl technique, sculpted board, 52,5 x 24 cm (ID: 3497)
Vinyl technique - a proprietary technique based on vinyl resin. It is characterized by a very matte and at the same time smooth finish that highlights the luminosity of the pigments, especially ultramarine.
Egg tempera - the most durable technique, next to wax tempera, in which the binder of colours is organic. It can be wine, vinegar or water mixed with egg yolk (egg tempera). This technique has been known since antiquity and was most popular in the Middle Ages. Unlike oil painting, the paint dries quickly, becomes brighter when dry and it is more difficult to select and mix colours.
