Styles & Periods
International Gothic

The art of Italy and its northern contemporaries came together in 1400, and the combined artistic traditions became a dominant style of Gothic Art called the Beautiful, or International Style. Though sculpture certainly saw the effects of the movement, painting dominated. Much of the grandeur that was present in earlier works was replaced by a subdued, elegant aesthetic. This refined style portrays stunning costumes, borrowed from the shared influence of the Byzantines. A growing interest in realism is evident in many works of the International Gothic period, and some details are painted in such a realistic manner as to suggest that they were observed from life. The concentration of detail on large panels was unprecedented and made the work seem like enlarged miniatures at times. Finally, the International Style is characterized by an assigning of symbolism to objects represented within the canvases. Lilies stood for Mary’s virginity, and architectural cues spoke to Old and New Testaments. The Adoration of the Magi, completed by Gentile da Fabriano in 1423, is considered to be the pinnacle of International Gothic achievement, and is seen by some as the style's last definitive breath before it was absorbed by the oncoming Early Renaissance.

Using this product, I create model houses of my own design. I have ordered from Misterart.com before and liked the product.
- GEORGE YOUNG in Seminole, Fl
I rely on this product to seal and coat my castings. I have been using this with my poly resin for many years. I have a tip for folks to use if you want the outcome to be more glossy: After you have sprayed your pieces, cover them with a dust-free, plastic container, or tray. Leave it to dry inside the covering overnight. The next day it should be dry, and shiny as glass. I have found that if you are using This spray in a very dry location, or in very low humidity, it dries too quickly for the gloss to set. Covering slows that process down considerably, and allows the gloss to settle.

So far I really like this, much better than Das clay. It has no unpleasant odor and is very smooth, takes detail well. Has a distinct leather hard phase where you can work that way, really neat. Hasn't been long enough to really test finished strength though as that takes two weeks (it's dry though in a day or two).
