Fully satisfied by the previous work for hall ceiling decor, we wanted Demart for staircase, bedrooms and meeting facilities decoration. Regarding the first, we asked Demart to design it with the style of beautiful Castello Estense decorations in Ferrara. Design work was mainfold for images development, and also for vaulted ceilings decorations.Cosetta S.
Digital fresco is an innovative decoration technique that uses digital processed images, transferred on surfaces of any kind and dimensions.
Digital fresco is not a film application on wall surface, but a real transfer process that takes the color onto the wall and paints it like brush made. The final result will be that of “fresco effect”.
Initially made for murales, the digital fresco technique extended its use to a wide range of materials like wood, plaster, concrete, bricks: digital fresco versatility makes wall decoration possible even on the most challenging surfaces (with irregularity and roughness up to 7-8mm), adapting to surface variations like archways, edges and corners.
Digital fresco manufacturing and installation: how it works
Using a pigment transfer technology, the specular image gets printed on a transfer paper. The paper pose will take place after the application of a special adhesion substance that, penetrating into roughnesses and porosity, makes pigment colors joinable to the surface.
After removing the transfer paper, we proceed to the final treatment to fix and protect the digital fresco image.
