What mediums are used most when creating art at Studio Nova?
After researching mediums and applications we would try and imitate the looks we were seeing on the furniture. This research led to processes such as gilding, striping, chinoiserie, and egg tempera. Learning the traditional ways first was an important step towards incorporating other modern mediums. We tend to use whichever medium will best express the final result. Sometimes that is acrylic; but watercolor, gouache, pastels, and oil paints all have their own unique expression. Other times, the subject matter will dictate the medium.
