If you want to make a fresco painting then you need to follow these steps - 1) Create a full scale detailed compositional rendering. 2) Create your color study. 3) Prepare your plaster a few days in advance in proportion of 8 parts extra fine sand to 5 parts slaked lime or so with the least water possible. 4) Put three coats of plaster on your panel at intervals of 5 days in between the coats or `wet on wet`. 5) Prepare your colors. 6) Use soft long bristles brushes. 7) Leave it to settle. 8) Tracing from the cartoon pounced along the lines with needle or pouncing wheel is laid over the plaster and dusted over the charcoal or simply incised by the opposite end of a thin brush to provide the base guideline for the painting process. 9) The end of the day for the fresco painter is the most pleasant stage the plaster enters what is sometime called `the golden hour` and the plaster is in its best stage.
