This Sgraffito wall is a small part of the Doloris Meta Maze in Tilburg, the largest walkthrough art installation in Europe by the Berlin art collective Karmanoia.
In this original design from Heidi Jonsson Raquel could enjoy to experiment with strong contrasted transparencies by enhancing colours with fresco plaster techniques in the final and intermediate layers. Some grinded copper was added between the layers, causing oxidation effects in constant change.
Project type: Commercial Sgraffito
Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands

Over the past decades Raquel Rodrígues has specialized in the Renaissance technique of sgraffito, wall murals made out of lime plaster.
By overlaying multiple layers of multicoloured plaster and precisely carving while the mortar is still soft so as to reveal parts of the underlying layer, an image is formed. Once the plaster has dried, the result is a durable drawing made of lime stone.
These large scale wall decorations will catch the eye in any surrounding and can be made to your specifications or created by the artist.
