Fresco

Frescos are works of wall or ceiling art created by applying pigment to a thin layer of lime plaster.  In the case of Buon Fresco, the artist paints directly into freshly mixed plaster with water-based colors.  Secco Fresco is painted on dry plaster using pigments mixed with a binding medium. EverGreene conservators work hand in hand with our plaster craftsmen and mural artists to restore frescos and safeguard them from the effects of time.
