(Kansas City, Mo.) (RNS) Fresco painting is one of the oldest techniques known to mankind. In the late Medieval and Renaissance periods, it was one of the chief methods of painting church ceilings and walls. Kansas City Fresco artist Joy Baer continues in this long and revered tradition taking religious themes as her subject.

In this video, she explains the all-natural process of making paint with earth minerals and applying them on a porous surface. Fresco, one of the only “green” methods of painting, uses no plastics, solvents or synthetics.
