52cm x 52 cm- Egg tempera on Icon board- 24 kt. Italian gold oil gilding background.
This is the first time I am doing the oil gilding. I want to experiment the technique. It is less painstaking, less risk-taking, but water still is my preference.
8″ x 10″ x 3.75″ Egg tempera. This Icon is done at Nazareth Hermitage, Ava, MO. The air is so wet. It takes forever for the bole to dry, then for a long time more to be able to work on the surface of the gold. But finally I finish the work. Thank Her!
