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 wall. The colors can thus be absorbed by the wet plaster. When it dries and hardens, the colors become one with plaster. 
Technically speaking the plaster does not "dry" but rather a chemical reaction occurs in which calcium carbonate is formed as a result of carbon dioxide from the air combining with the calcium hydrate in the wet plaster.

iLia Anossov is one of the very few fresco masters now living in the USA. iLia  is the founder of Nationwide Fresco Painting Workshop Program™, Discover Fresco® Workshop for Children Program and Contemporary Fresco Painting resource Center at TrueFresco.com. "Albuquerque Fresco" by iLia Anossov is the largest contemporary buon fresco in Western USA.


Steps in Creation of the Buon Fresco:

1. Development of the composition - initial BW rendering/drawing is produced for the client for the initial approval of the composition and to personalize the elements of the fresco. When all elements of the fresco become clear to both parties, final detailed rendering and/or scaled color study is developed and delivered to the client for the Final Rendering Approval. (When necessary, images of the "work in progress" are also posted in CLIENT CENTER.)

2. Cartoon and Color Studies - after the final rendering is approved by the client we begin the development of the "Cartoon" - full scale drawing of the future fresco and full scale color studies of the major elements of the fresco. There will be a minimum of two (initial and final) scheduled in-studio client screenings during the work on the Cartoon. (For client's convenience images of the "work in progress" are posted in CLIENT CENTER, when necessary for in-town and regularly for out-of-town projects.)

Initial Cartoon Screening - after the initial values of the fresco (background, composition, layout of the details) have been developed client is invited to the studio to confirm the overall appearance of the future fresco. At this stage secondary changes and adjustments can be proposed by the client. (for out-of-town projects we use high quality professional photographs that are sent to the client via FedEx)

3. Wall Preparation - wall preparation generally begins after the "Initial Cartoon Screening" and depending on the specifics of the project consists of - building of the Fresco Wall from scratch and/or Building of Supporting Fresco Plaster coats.

Final Screening - before "transfer tracings" of the final Cartoon are prepared client is invited to the studio for the Final Cartoon Screening. (for out-of-town projects we use high quality professional photographs that are sent to the client via FedEx)

4. Painting - buon fresco painting begins with "Sinopia". Sinopia is later covered section by section with "intonaco" plaster on which the actual buon fresco painting is done. Sinopia serves as a reference guide for positioning "giornatas"  as artist progresses through the work.

--"sinopia" - a full scale monochrome rendering of fresco on "arriccio"
--"arriccio" - plaster coat preceding the "intonaco"
--"intonaco" - final plaster coat the fresco is painted on
--"giornata" - a section of fresco painted in one day



Alternatively fresco can be painted in-studio on our custom designed collectable panels and installed on location. Buon Fresco panel is securely mounted on the wall with the frame visible (we offer a selection of styles), or inserted into the wall.


Payment Schedule:

1. Initial Deposit - 15% of the total cost of the project, due on contract signing.
2. Production Deposit - 50% of the total cost of the project, due when the final rendering is approved.
3. Progress Payment - 15% due when the Sinopia is completed.
4. Final Payment - balance, due when the fresco is completed.

For your convenience we accept credit card payments online at our CLIENT CENTER
