Painting in Stone: The Technique of Buon Fresco
This workshop explores the ancient technique of buon fresco painting, the process made famous by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling, and Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry mural. Working in fresco requires an artist to apply pigment to freshly laid plaster. As the work dries, the pigment and plaster become integrated as one, resulting in a permanent surface that is essentially colored stone.
