Decorative Arts

DECORATIVE ARTS are used to make objects, in general easily movable and destined for actual use but with a large margin of superfluous and luxurious non-utility, created for aesthetic use and enjoyment. Through design, playing on repeated modules or colour combinations either to imitate surfaces or particular materials or to contribute to the embellishment or decoration of an object or room. Sometimes creating such objects moves into hobby territory, at others it approaches higher levels of art and taste, almost as if to show that, whatever the definitions and technical distinctions, art overcomes the barriers of any fixed boundary.

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
