Today, we introduce the so-called “Tecnica dello Spolvero” (Pouncing) an art technique used for transferring an image from one surface to another.
This student is spreading with a brush a coffee-colored powder on the sketching paper, which has been previously punched with holes. By doing so, the pigment gets spread out creating a sketch on the canvas.
The student has prepared the sketch in advance, tracing along the image outlines by creating pricked marks on the sheet, with a punch/needle. By connecting the transferred pigment dots on the canvas, you can see the image emerging little by little. So, it is really important to think carefully where to prick the paper sheet.
