Fresco & Cement Pigments
The ancient technique of fresco painting involves the application of pigment onto a freshly plastered wall. As the plasterhardens, it bonds the pigment to the wall. Unlike a mural painting no other binder is involved. This allows the pigment to be displayed in its natural state, as in the powdered state. The lime plaster which is used in fresco is caustic and therefore will burn out certain colors. Below is a unsorted list of all of the pigments which are lime plaster proof and will withstand the chemical processes of the lime plaster setting and drying.
