When purchasing a Custom, Made to Order Painting, you are commissioning the artist to create for you a new ORIGINAL piece of artwork. These paintings will be one-of-a-kind, hand painted and TEXTURED with Vasari Marmorino or Veneziano Plaster created by Tabitha Benedict. EACH PIECE IS A LAYERED CREATION & FUSION OF Lime plasters that have been in use since 8,000BC. Each PAINTING IS A MULTI-LAYER PROCESS, WHICH GIVES THESE PIECES an Authentic LOOK and feel. THEY TEND TO REFLECT on THE WARMTH AND COLORS OF Nature. THE LONGER YOU LOOK, THE MORE YOU WILL FIND IN THE DETAILS. Vasari plaster can be applied subtlety with minimal movement, color and texture or with more depth and dramatic modeling. Different colors of plaster and endless coats can be combined revealing more depth, texture and translucence. The piece is then finished off with a wax as a protective finish. Lime plasters last for a very long time and improve with age and are eco-friendly and have zero VOC. This process of painting on lime plaster is often referred to as fresco secco, painting on dry plaster. These finishes have garnished the walls of palaces, museums and tombs.
Tabitha’s PIECES BREATHE & RADIATE LIFE. SHE PUSHES THE BOUNDARIES with different types of plaster AND EVEN THE MOST MINIMAL PIECE EMBODIES A MESSAGE FROM THE HEART.
