Petro has a strong desire and urge for iconographic work; however, he has limited resources. Many projects are done for donations. This is an opportunity for you to become an active enlightener of Christian Holy Scriptures and traditions through icons.

Please share some of your resources for him to be able to share the images of God's love for mankind and knowledge of the Heavenly Kingdom among people of this world.

 

THE ICON - PAINTING TECHNIQUE

Peter uses traditional techniques of icon painting utilized in the classical school of Byzantine iconography, such as, the use of egg tempera on a gessoed wooden board. Most of the icons presented on this site were written with the use of this technique.

Egg tempera is a solution of natural pigments and egg yolk with other natural ingredients intended for the long term preservation of color. This solution is layered with a brush on a wooden board (or plywood for better conservation of the board) primed with a base coat of marble dust and natural glues.

Occasionally, and at a customer's request, acrylic paints may  be used as well.

The background of the icon may be painted or gilded.

23K gold leaf is used for all gilding.

TO ORDER AN ICON

Peter has some icons already in stock, please see the  ICONS IN STOCK  tab at the top of the page.

Otherwise, all icons are custom made upon request.

All Christian traditional icons can be duplicated or a new design, according to the Orthodox Church Canonical standards and traditions, can be made upon your request in any size.

If you already have decided a specific icon you would like to order, you can either mail or email it's theme and size to petrodzyuba@verizon.net.

There are several examples of icons in the PHOTO GALLERY at the top of this page, but of course, you are not bound by the samples shown on this site. Peter can alternatively email or mail to you other samples to choose from.

Additionally, you can also specify whether your icon will be written on a flat board or on a board with a profile (kovcheg). Both can be made of the wood variety you prefer, or of plywood (usually 3/4" birch).

According to your instructions the icon can also be written with acrylic paints.

You can choose the language of the inscription on the icon: English, Church Slavonic, Greek, among others.
