Buon Fresco is a painting technique that originated in antiquity. It was used throughout the Mediterranean and was made famous by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
The basic ingredients of a fresco are lime, sand and a dozen earth colors painted directly onto a freshly laid area of plaster or “giornata”as it is commonly referred to in fresco painting. This gives the fresco its longevity and beautiful appearance.
