What is Lazure?
Lazure is layers of paint prepared nearly as thin and transparent as watercolor, consisting of water, binder, and pigment. It is applied with a rhythmical movement using large brushes. The final color is achieved using varied colors applied in several layers, over a white surface. Light passes through these thin layers of color and is reflected back, giving a pure color experience.
Flat, monotone colors are tiring on the eyes while color, with variation of hue and tone, stimulate and balance the activity of the eyes. The lazure method offers a creative and conscientious use of color that provides nourishment for the eye and the soul. It can achieve aesthetically beautiful results and act as a powerful healing influence amid the stress and tension of modern life. Lazured walls are found in a variety of settings including offices, restaurants, residences, schools, curative and medical establishments and places of worship.
