WATER GILDING  TECHNIQUES

OF THE BYZANTINE ICONS


         I OFFER YOU AN ONLINE WAY TO LEARN AND CONSOLIDATE  KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE WATER GILDING  TECHNIQUE OF THE BYZANTINE ICONS.


         STUDENTS WILL BE PART OF A PRIVATE GROUP ON FACEBOOK WHERE WE WILL DISCUSS THE WATER GILDING  TECHNIQUE, THE MATERIALS USED, THE SOURCES OF SUPPLY WITH THOSE NECESSARY FOR WATER GILDING  PROCESS. I WILL TRY TO ANSWER THE STUDENTS 'QUESTIONS REGARDING THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF WATER GILDING , BUT AT THE SAME TIME THE STUDENTS WILL POST ON GROUP PHOTO WITH THEIR TESTS CARRIED OUT AND EXPLAIN HOW THEY PROCEEDED.


         THE PURPOSE IS TO FORM A SMALL COMMUNITY IN WHICH THE WATER GILDING  PROCESS WILL BE DISCUSSED  IN DETAIL. NO COURSE HOURS WILL BE HELD. EVERYONE HAS THE FREEDOM TO WORK WHEN THEY CAN AND WHEN THEY WANT.


         THE MAIN MATERIAL WE WILL WORK ON WILL BE A FILM THAT SHOWS A COMPLETED AND DETAILED  WATER GILDING PROCESS OF AN BYZANTIN ICON, SIZE A3. THE MOVIE LASTS 10.5 HOURS, IS HOSTED BY THE YOUTUBE PLATFORM AND INCLUDES SUBTITLE IN ROMANIAN LANGUAGE WITH NECESSARY EXPLANATIONS  FOR EACH EXECUTION STAGE.


         THIS WAY THE MOVIE CAN BE WATCHED WITH AUTOMATIC SUBTITLING IN OTHER LANGUAGES.

         ACCESS TO THE FILMED MATERIAL AND THE PRIVATE GROUP ON FACEBOOK IS ONLY ON A SUBSCRIPTION  BASIS.


         WHAT DOES A 3,OR 6, OR 12 MONTH SUBSCRIPTION MEAN? IT MEANS THAT 3, OR 6, OR 12 MONTHS YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THE FACEBOOK GROUP AND THE MAIN FILMED MATERIAL. AFTER THE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD ENDS, YOU WILL NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO THE GROUP AND THE VIDEO MATERIAL.
