Holy Cards classification according to the holy construction techniques

The holy cards to CANIVETS holy pictures are hand-carved with a penknife (CANIV) so a series of friezes, cornices and foliage. May be of paper or parchment. And watercolor paintings are the oldest and dates back to the XVII-XVIII. In the nineteenth century passed to chromolithographs that were applied with glue.

The holy cards used on parchment or vellum, in fact, sheep skin or goat or calf. Her skin was tanned and smooth. It was formerly used as writing material in place of papyrus. In this medium were printed and painted images.

The holy cards with embroidery on textiles were embellished with images available and a dense and delicate embroidery of colored threads.

The clothes were not holy to those that are worn on clothing, but those whose image was dressed with pieces of paper, silk or satin cloth and made precious by contours and subtleties in golden foil.

The holy cards on collage using mixed media and composite materials: paper, cardboard, foil ivory, foil, pearl, cloth, colored straws, dried leaves and petals glued. Experts in this case, say that this is the best expression of popular art on religious holy pictures.

The holy ACQUERELLI were painted by hand. It is generally used vegetable colors or tempera. The first industrial production of saints, although the coloring was done manually with special masks.

The holy dots were made with the special technique of drilling the base of the holy card with a fine tip, a needle or a pin, creating designs and frames.

The holy Trinity or Lace WITH LACE were produced with a printing process carried out with punches to dry. The picture was similar to a contour with lace. More punch is fine and worked longer results obtained image is nice and valuable.

I used the holy relief printing technique obtained from the paper between two sheets of metal shaped.

The holy ENGRAVINGS belong to those whose technology is the most elaborate. It is a type of printing, according to materials used and scored, taking names and different characters: etching, engraving, drypoint, woodcut, etc.. Usually the incisions were and are black and white. Those are rare and interesting color bleeds.

The Santini made a lithograph created by a printing process performed on limestone or metal plates (zinc or aluminum) appropriately dealt with and sensitive to the property of absorbing certain fats.

Chromolithograph are obtained with the holy fruit of layering multiple lithographic stones or plates printed in several colors.

The oleographs is, instead, a process likely to obtain similar effects chromolithograph an oil painting.

With photolithography goes use of photography.

The holy cards written and / or manuscripts are small rectangles of paper-free image used for special prayers and communions Pasquali nineteenth century. Rare are the holy of such manuscripts.

In those theaters are generally chromolithographs shaped, retained by tabs in the paper, suitable to ensure that we can extend and then open up and form different levels or layers of depth. Open, precisely as a stage setting.

Those openable BOOK consist of different parts can be opened and folded as if you browse in the book. This kind of holy cards can also be called an accordion.

The holy SURPRISE holy pictures that are hidden in certain conditions a surprise. Manually opened or exposed to light reveal the secret and become graphically complete.

The holy Diecutting are made of cardboard produced mechanically, with tiny holes, equally spaced and very close, ready to be carved by hand. Well suited for any number of geometric patterns or as a backing for embroidery. It 'also known as cardboard half point or tipping paper.

The holy CURIOSITY votive are, finally, a rare example of popular devotion which resulted in the rudimentary and elemental representation of grace received.

The holy RELICS, however, contain holy pictures with parts of garments or items that belonged to a saint or a blessed.
