Stages of work include:

  • Transfering the image onto tracing paper. We will use tracing paper not only to transfer the design but also to learn and explore the shape and the line.
  • Transferring finished drawings onto a panel covered with layers of gesso.
  • Redrawing with paint. At this stage, students will start learning how to make paints using egg yolk and dry pigments.
  • Once all surfaces are covered with enough layers of ground we can start building shapes using lights. In icon painting, we don’t build shapes with shadows.
  • Gilding – we will be working for real gold leaf. You will be guided step by step in this process to learn the traditional method of gilding. We will be working with oil gilding.
  • Applying final lights and highlights. Finishing.
  • It is recommended to wait at least a few weeks before varnishing the finished icon painted in egg tempera. Guidance and demonstration will be provided.
