Levkas

(Greek leukos - White) - multi-layer soil were prepared in Russian medieval painting of the iconic chalk or gypsum (alabaster) powder mixed with glue of animal origin (of hide, fish, etc.) in the wall tempera painting - from the slaked lime with fillers (sand, crushed brick, crushed limestone, finely chopped flax fiber). Levkas - thick and solid, like those grounds on which it is applied. Carefully smoothed surface Levkas and white (with wall Levkas - yellow) are well suited for transparent layers of paint, in the applied arts Levkas - the ground on wooden products for painting and gilding.
