Hand painted 1/12 scale miniature traditional egg tempera reproductions

Demi-Tasse paintings are entirely hand-painted using traditional methods of egg tempera painting. Powdered pigments are ground and “tempered” in egg yolk then applied in tiny strokes to wood panels coated with layers of “true gesso” in the manner of the Medieval and Renaissance Masters whose beautiful works I am inspired to replicate in miniature.
