Item details

A plywood panel in the size of 13x18 cm or 5.11x7 inches  that is covered with gesso and sanded in order to have its smooth, white surface ready for the egg tempera colors that are used in byzantine iconography

Our panels are handmade, prepared in our family workshop. A piece of plywood is coated with pure egyptian cotton cloth that is glued with  rabbit skin glue. This first layer is then followed by 4-7 layers of egg tempera gesso which is a mixture of rabbit skin glue, zinc and a kind of stucco. Next the panel is rigorously sanded until it acquires its smooth surface which is ideal for and painting gold leafing

Finally it is inserted in a plastic sleeve, ready to be send to you.- If you like to see more for materials for byzantine icon making check our supply section for - Icon panels, pigment sets, top layers and tracing patterns: https://www.etsy.com/shop/angelicon?ref=l2-shopheader-name§ion_id=21177077

***Our panels are not an industrialised product- Therefore some tiny flows may exist (on the edges not the center of the board) that would never undermine the aesthetical value of the finished product
