Little Treasures is a series of miniature Egg Tempera paintings on traditional Gesso-boards, embellished with 22 Carat gold leaf.

Little  Treasures is a series of miniature Egg Tempera paintings on traditional Gesso-boards, embellished with 22 Carat gold leaf. 

The boards are firstly sealed with traditional glue size, then given several coats of gesso and left to dry completely. They are then sanded until the surface is as smooth as eggshell. And after a period of time to cure, the lengthy process of painting begins. The paint is prepared using ground pigments mixed with egg yolk and distilled water. The subject is lightly sketched in graphite and the painted surface is built up in thin layers. It’s a very time consuming process but there is something tranquil and satisfying about it.

Finally, the 22 Carat gold leaf is added and they are sealed with an archival varnish to protect them.
