WHAT SUPPORT DO YOU USE?
We realize our frescoes on two supports.
The support TNT, non-woven fabric, typically used to realize the craft wallpapers, is onlyrecommended to make frescoes for interiors.The fiberglass Net Backing, instead, is recommended for the exterior, because it is durable and is also excellent for bathrooms and swimming pools.
HOW ARE THE SUPPORTS REALIZED?
Both supports are handmade by applying the plaster with a spatula onto the support.
The final result is a true thin wall that is rolled up and the surface is similar to a frescoed wall.
BUT ARE THEY REPRODUCTIONS OR PAINTINGS?
They are reproductions which are made directly on the plaster support and the final effect is like a real fresco.
ARE THE SIZES THAT I SEE ON THE WEBSITE AND IN THE CATALOG STANDARD OR CAN THEY BE CHANGED?
All images can be customized and you can also realize a detail.
IF I SEND YOU A PICTURE OF MINE, CAN YOU REPRODUCE IT?
We can reproduce any image, but the result depends on the quality of the file.
You can send us the file and the size you prefer and we will tell you if it can be realized according to your size without losing quality.
WHAT ARE THE DELIVERY TIMES FROM ORDER AND HOW ARE THE FRESCOES SHIPPED?
It depends on the period of time but they are normally realized within 5 working days from order. They are shipped by express courier and delivered in 2-10 days according
to the express service requested. They are rolled on cylinders of polystyrene and packed in cardboard boxes.
HOW ARE THEY GLUED?
The wall must be flat and clean.
After a definition of the perimeter of the fresco on the wall, apply the glue inside the perimeter with a brush (or a notched spatula for the net backing). After applying the glue you can unroll the fresco. Take care that any air bubbles are released.
We recommend a vinyl glue for heavy wallpapers for the support TNT, and a glue for cork for the net backing.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM SIZE THAT YOU CAN REALIZE?
It depends on the quality of the file. The maximum size for a single module is of 150×350 cm for the support TNT, while the net backing can be realized in 150×245 cm.
Frescoes of larger size are realized by installing more modules side by side until the required size is reached.
CAN YOU SURROUND IT WITH A DECORATION OR PUT A FRAME?
Certainly. You can realize all kinds of decorations all around, you can as well surround it with a frame of your choice or you can level the gap with stucco and then paint the wall.
DOES THE FRESCO NEED MAINTENANCE? HOW CAN I CLEAN IT?
The fresco for interiors in support tnt requires no maintenance and can be cleaned with a damp cloth without pressing too much on the surface.
Instead, the fresco on net backing, if installed outside, should be treated with a water repellent containing UV filters. This takes a few minutes and we recommend to repeat it
The outdoor resistance depends very much on exposure to the sun. Frescoes currently installed in 2005 lost an average of 20% of the strong colors.
