SAINT NECTARIOS: The final steps……

A  nearly completed Icon of Saint Nectarios sat untouched in the corner of my work room. The Saint patiently and quietly looked at me every day wondering when I will get around to finishing him. “Important” and pressing projects kept bumping him aside. Weeks passed, one after another. He never complained – not that I heard at least! (Perhaps that was the problem –  I wasn’t listening!)

In any case, as part of my New Year resolution of not putting things off, I tackled Saint Nectarios first! 

~~~ 

 

THE FINAL STEPS:

Completed robes…..

 

Lettering has been completed….. 

 

Sizing is applied for the gilding of ornaments and trim……. 

 

22k gold is applied…… 

 

Excess gold is carefully brushed away…… 

 

The Icon is varnished….

 

And finally,

the finished piece!

    Thank you for sharing, Mr. Maday. It was very interesting to see the many stages you go through to complete a piece. I’m am eagerly awaiting the completion of the Guardian Angel! I’m sure it will be just as beautiful!

    Thank you for sending me the email about your process of writing the Icons.
    As I played my Christmas advent music this year, I was remembering your kindness to me last Advent when I was trying to translate the words from a hymn sung by the Kiev Chamber choir and your forwarded to me a copy from the Greek Horologian: ” God is with us”————– So very true, that He is always there. We just do not see Him or we are otherwise occupied.

    Your work is a touch of heaven. Blessings in 2013!!!!

    Beautiful work and I can’t wait to see the finished Guardian Angel!

    Dear Andrij
    I love your beautiful icons and this one in particular (Nectarios). I am interested in a giclee. Does it come on board and is it also gilded with the gold? Thank you very much – Lisa
