16x11cm Wooden Picture - Icon Made Using Image Of Holy Martyr Tryphon:
Handmade icon Holy Martyr Tryphon.
Dimensions of the icon 16cm x 10.5 cm, 6 1/2" x 4".
Thickness of the wooden basis 2.4cm or my icons I use special image transfer technique which is close to decoupage. I do all the works by myself and by my hands. At first I prepare wooden basis and cover it’s surface with special chalk/glue mix, polish when it dries. Then I glue a flipped image upside down and let it dry again, wet the surface and point by point carefully remove an upper layer of the paper with my finger tips. After that I cover the icon with special varnish and special brush to achieve the similarity with the ancient original painting and stain the opposite side. Using this technology my icons and pictures look quite realistic. Surfaces of the icons are uneven, a little rough, the shabby corners and edges strengthen an impression of antique. I'm making my icons on an old or on a new wood. The old wood icons are more realistic and more old-looking. All materials are eco-friendly, certificated for domestic works and home Environment.I AM ACCEPTING PERSONAL ORDERS, not necessarily religious. Making your picture will take 5-10 days. You can see more my handmade religious icons and pictures on the wood on ETSY. Find the shop "Wooden Holy Day" there.
