Technique description

I don’t start painting an icon without a prayer. Only then do I take a board and cover it with a cloth soaked in mint (animal) glue. It takes 24 hours for the board to dry, then I cover it with 6 layers of chalk with glue that’s called gesso. Every layer dries 24 hours. Simultaneously I draw a picture on a piece of paper and then transfer it to the board.

The next step is to apply 24-carat gold on the board, in case the icon needs it.
After that it’s time for colors. I use only natural materials, namely, various types of ocher, indigo, white, glauconite, semi-precious minerals malachite, lazurite, azurite, cinnabar, auripigment.

All the materials are grinded in a mortar to a powdered state and mixed with egg yolk. First, I paint dark tones, then the light ones. The finished icon is covered with varnish. After that neither 5-10 minutes under pouring rain nor just a damp cloth are a threat for the icon painting.

It takes 6-7 days to write the most simple icon painting.

That’s how the Ukrainian icons were written in the 15th-16th centuries and I try to follow this painting tradition.

    With U.S. economic sanctions in place, it was no easy task finding a way to make payment to this shop, but Western Union worked. The icon arrived by FedEx ground today as promised. It's stunning, far more beautiful than the picture. I absolutely love it and will treasure it forever.
