Pigments for Fresco

resistant to lime

spacer spacer

fresco painting can only be done with certain colors. Due to the extreme alkaline nature of the binder, only certain pigments are stable enough to be used in this media. Cadmium colors should only be used only on indoor frescoes.

This is not a complete list and other colors may be suitable. All colors should be tested for stability in your environment before selecting them for use.
