This panel is light plywood made on our own workshop. The icon is drawn with the traditional egg tempera technique (that we produce from a mixture of pigments, egg yolk and vinegar) After painting, the icon is varnished (with a natural resin varnish) and then we leave it to dry for several days to produce an artwork that will last.

The icon would be prepared as gift with its individual bag, certificate and mini extras from our shop.
