OUR TECHNIQUE

The icon is created on a traditional wooden base with set of levkas, a chalk-based natural glue, and a painted background. The icon is printed on a silk canvas and the final details are hand-painted by the iconographer. High-quality icon, with bright colors and the icon, seems like a hand-painted icon. Upon completion of the transcription, a few finishing touches are incorporated following special techniques of the St. Pantaleon monastery. Icons that are made in our workshop all come with a certificate bearing our seal, attesting to their originality and the authenticity of our technology. Only a certificate and seal can be a guarantee of the high and long-standing quality of our icons.
