Aerugo: bright green rust which forms on bronze and other metals which contain copper after exposure to air or acid: The obsolete pigment Verdigris was made of this substance.

additive sculpture Sculptural form produced by combining or building up material from a core or armature. Modeling in clay and welding steel are additive processes.

Additive sculpture
Modeling a sculpture by adding materials to it until the desired effect is achieved.

Its effects are less familiar than pigment mixture to most people. If all three primaries are mixed, the theoretical result is white light. Therefore Light mixture is sometimes referred to as additive mixture.

In another sense medium may be used to describe an additive to the colours when painting, linseed to oil-paints, egg yolk to tempera, gum to water-colour.

Natural light, or sunlight, is whole or additive light. As the sum of all the wavelengths composing the visible spectrum, it may be disassembled or fragmented into the individual colors of the spectral band.

Carving: The cutting of a figure or design out of a solid material such as stone or wood, as contrasted to the additive technique of modeling.

This leads to all details being recorded additively with the same emphasis, and the color being softened very little. His knowledge about the influence of light and air on the appearance of color only becomes noticeable in later works.

rer experienced in Italian art the holistic, organic approach to composition which lay at the opposite end of the spectrum to the art north of the Alps, where painting continued to be understood as the additive combination of individual elements.

In sculpture, an additive process where the artist builds up a form by adding and shaping material. In painting, the technique of using light and shade to suggest three-dimensionality.

Although terracottas are usually formed using additive techniques, many Nok pieces were sculpted subtractively in a manner similar to carving. This distinctive approach suggests that a comparable wood-carving tradition may have influenced them.

Among other techniques, he utilizes the difference between the additive and subtractive mixing of colors.

Inert Pigment: A powdered paint additive that does not change the shade or hue, but extends or otherwise imparts a special working quality to the paint.

Watercolor Mediums and Additives: Check out these nifty mediums and additives that can be mixed with watercolors to change the paint quality.

MODELING PASTE. An additive used to make ACRYLIC paints sculptable.
MODELLO. A drawing of a principle form of a composition made on a reduced scale in preparation for a larger work.

Basic color theory involves the science of light, the principles of pigment, the categories of additive and subtractive color, as well as physiology of the human eye and the psychology of the brain.

Bronze is any of a broad range of copper alloys, usually with tin as the main additive.It is strong and tough and is often favoured by Artists for Sculpture. It was particularly significant in antiquity, giving its name to the Bronze Age.

color theory: as used in the Kentucky Core Content, the study of pigmented color (subtractive color theory) as opposed to light (additive color theory).

RGB: stands for Red, Green, Blue. In web design and design for computer monitors, colors are defined in terms of a combination of these three basic additive colors.

The ground glass used as a dryer and bulking additive was probably a low grade of Smalt, less blue than the better grades, and low in tinting strength, so it could be mixed with any color without altering its appearance noticeably.

Subtractive Colour - As oppose to additive colour which emits light, subtractive colour absorbs the wavelengths that make up white light and reflects only certain wavelengths which people observe as a particular colour ...more info ...
