The technique of painting juice is quite simple. On the paint palette, diluted some paint with water. And then applied on the surface. The excess is blotted immediately with a dry brush or with a damp sponge.

- Dark gray juice on all the pieces of masonry.
- White juice on brown frames and shop.

After complete drying, we print the pattern and positioning the various parts.
