Cleaning: use a clean soft fabric to take care of your icon. Please do not use any cleaning sprays, chemicals or water. Procedure: first of all i prepare the wood with special materials so i can carefully sketch the figure on it. After that i start painting the basic colors and later on i come back many times with my various brush sizes to end up to the concrete details of the holy faces.
Faithful to the byzantine art tradition and the orthodox christian religion, my aim is to draw friendly and merciful holy faces so that their gentleness inspires somebody to pray and hope. You may have a personalized message hand painted on the backside of the icon free of charge please sent us your request in the optional field above.
Languages: english, greek, french or spanish. Example: may the lord always blesses you and your beloved ones.
