It is a very unique method of painting. Using light to build shapes instead of shadows.

Then the magic happens and an image emerges from the surface.
The demonstration will include:
1. Brief explanation of the technique and meaning of Icons.
2. Preparation of egg yolk binding medium.
3. All the stages of painting.
4. Gold gilding.
There will also be a chance to try some painting. Mix some pigments with egg medium.Have some fun.
