FRESCO PAINT
Fresco: The word is Italian for "fresh". The technique
involves painting with dry pigment on wet plaster. Fresco
involves painting on dry plaster
because many churches and other buildings required
paintings, directly on plaster walls, artists perfected the
use of fresco, The Fresco paintings are durable. It is
quick to dry. Fresco paintings are not movable because
they are permanently attached to the walls; and fresco
paintings are subject to loss in the event that the walls
are destroyed.
One advantage of this medium is that it will last as long
as the wall itself. One of the greatest examples of the
fresco is Michelangelos Sistine Chapel, on the ceiling of
which is the famous Creation of Adam
