Hand Painted Saints
Each statue is hand cast from classic Catholic moulds and hand painted in the Italian Renaissance style, using centuries old recipes for the tempera based gouache paint and aging glazes. The gilded ornamentation is achieved by applying loose gold leaf sheets to the surface of the statue, using the same techniques developed by skilled artisans hundreds of years ago. This gives the piece an added warm decorative illumination. The effect of these traditional recipes and classical methods, combined with the spirit of the saint, gives the statue a remarkable aged patina and one of a kind beauty.
