Custom Half-Figure Hand-painted Icon
We will use a prototype of our choosing unless you would like to provide one which can be uploaded above.
Please note that all our icons are painted in traditional Byzantine style and we can only offer icons of Saints recognized by the Orthodox Church.
If you are interested in an icon with a detailed background, (e.g. buildings, mountains, etc..) please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
Our hand painted icons currently take approximately 18 months to complete.
Half Figure: figure is shown in bust form, from head to waist.
Gold Embellishments: Simple elegant gold borders and gold detailing in the clothing, etc.
Raised Frame: Icon border is raised to create a distinct frame.
Relief Work: a process in which various surface decorations on the Icon are raised and then gilded. The relief can also have highlights and the design painted. Relief patterns may range from simple accents around a halo to complex and detailed pieces that constitute the major portion of an Icon. More ornate types of relief and decoration are also available. Rhinestones may also be added to relief work.
