How to make fresco.
Affresco ( In English usage, “fresco” ).
Painting done on freshly laid wet plaster
with pigments dissolved in lime water. As
both dry they become completely
integrated. Known as “true” fresco, this
technique was most popular from the late
thirteenth to the mid-sixteenth centuries.
The common assumption that all mural
painting is fresco painting is an erroneous
idea. It is true that one can in fact paint on
fresh plaster, or intonaco, to make a
painting in affresco or a fresco. In true
fresco the artist must start applying his
colors on the wet (or fresco) intonaco as
soon as it has been prepared and laid on
The colors can thus be absorbed by the
wet plaster. When it dries and hardens,
the colors become one with plaster.
