The art of decorating surfaces with paints and a brush is called art painting. The very concept of painting is seriously different from painting, as it is part of the space conceived by the artist.


Artistic painting was originally applied to any democratic and easily obtainable materials: leather, wood, natural fabrics, clay and bone. Skills were passed from generation to generation by craftsmen, specific artistic techniques appeared that helped to make the product recognizable. Over time, the most meaningful and expressive ornamentation was chosen. In architecture, ceilings, vaults, walls, beams were decorated with paintings, and in everyday life the decor was applied to household items.

The systematization of various types of painting was first begun back in 1876 by Professor A.A. Isaev in his two-volume edition entitled "Mines of the Moscow Province". Artistic painting enterprises are currently developing their business to meet the demand in the markets of Russia and abroad.

The workpiece is turned from wood on a lathe, then primed with a specially prepared clay solution or artificial primers are used. The dishes are covered with paint based on tin or silver, less often - aluminum. They are painted according to a conceived motive and dried in an oven, then varnished and hot dried again.
