Then we coat it with fine fabric, such as cotton or linen, dipped in lukewarm glue. When the glue dries, we cut off the excess fabric hanging over the board and apply the ground that we are going to paint on as follows: We mix gesso with glue and apply several criss crossed coats making sure each dries before the subsequent coat is applied. After all the layers have dried we sand the ground with fine sandpaper to obtain a very smooth surface.

When the glue dries, we cut off the excess fabric hanging over the board and apply the ground that we are going to paint on as follows: We mix gesso with glue and apply several criss crossed coats making sure each dries before the subsequent coat is applied.
After all the layers have dried we sand the ground with fine sandpaper to obtain a very smooth surface. The board is now prepared and ready to be painted on. The next step is to make a rough sketch of the Saint or scene we are going to paint. First we draw the sketch adjusting it proportionately to the space we have been given. The composition is one of the basic elements that contribute to the final aesthetic of the icon.
After we transfer the composition to the board we can start painting the background with blue or an ochre color, or prepare the surface for gilding. Using the technique of oil gilding we apply several coats of shellac to insulate and smooth the surface. Then we apply a glue, called mixtion which is specifically used for oil gilding. After 12 hours we can apply the gold leaf. Another gilding technique, the traditional one, is water gilding.
Instead of mixtion we use water, brandy or vodka as a binder and then we burnish the gold with an agate stone. The preparation of the ground is the same as for oil gilding but requires more layers of gesso and must be done with great precision and care because the surface we are going to gild must be absolutely smooth.
For this technique we use bolus instead of shellac. Bolus is a paste of different colors diluted with the white of the egg, as a kind of bedding, so as to fuse with the gold when burnished with the agate stone. This technique is followed by very few iconography painters as it requires a great deal of experience. There are also many technical difficulties involved in its successful application.
After gilding we are ready to begin painting the icon. Egg tempera is the basic medium for icon painting. By using egg yolk diluted with water and vinegar, and adding natural pigments we create different color tones. We never use acrylics or industrial colors because they not only fail in reflecting the color tones but they also fade after a while.
The natural pigments used by the first iconographers have retained their original color, allowing us to admire their work throughout the ages. Regarding the process, the painting of portable icons as well as mural iconography is done with the same technique. Sarcomata as well as vestments, are painted in successive layers of color, creating subtle gradations from dark to light. At the next stage we proceed with the painting of the outline, with a very thin brush, of the eyes, nose, ears and eyebrows in a dark color.
The outline requires great attention for it is the means of conveying the expression of the Saint. The eyes are painted larger than the norm in order to accentuate their expression more intensively. The pupils of the eyes also become more elliptic. In order to even out the meeting points, a medium tone is applied, called semi-sarcoma.
Later lights are applied adding a little white to the flesh color. We apply as many lights as it takes for the volume of the face to be satisfactory. The hair is painted using the same technique. Their application requires a great deal of attention and detail, using fine brush strokes loaded with as little paint as possible.
We proceed with the second and third lama keeping part of each previous one uncovered. When the painting is finished we make the halos, the lettering and the margins. The halos can be gilded or painted in an ochre color.
The icon is now ready to be varnished. This ought to be done a few weeks later so that the chemical fusion of the egg and the pigments has been completed. After one month we can proceed with the final varnish. We apply the varnish with a brush.
Pentru cel care voieste a deprinde mestesugul zugraviei, sa se faca pentru el rugaciune catre Domnul Iisus Hristos, in ziua de Pasti. Straluceasca si noua, pacatosilor, lumina Ta cea pururea fiitoare, pentru rugaciunile Nascatoare de Dumnezeu, Datatorule de lumina, slava Tie. Insuti, Stapane, Dumnezeule al tuturor, lumineaza, intelepteste sufletul, inima si cugetul robului Tau numele ; si mainile mele le indrepteaza fara de prihana si prea bine a zugravi chipul asemanarii Tale si al preacuratei Maicii Tale si al tuturor sfintilor, intru a Ta slava si intru stralucirea si infrumusetarea sfintei Tale bisericii si spre iertarea pacatelor celor ce cu cinstire cuviincioasa le aduc acestora inchinaciune si cu buna cucernicie le saruta, si cinstire catre cel infatisat inalta; si ma izbaveste de toata uneltirea diavoleasca, sporind in toate poruncile Tale, prin mijlocirile prea curatei Maicii Tale, ale sfantului slavitului apostol si evanghelist Luca si ale tuturor sfintilor Tai.
Apoi, ectenia Slava…Si acum…Doamne miluieste de 3 ori si otpustul Pentru rugaciunile sfintilor parintilor nostri, Doamne Iisus Hristoase, Dumnezeul nostru, miluieste-ne pe noi. Skip to content. Posted on Saturday, 28 September 1 comment.
