The word "Fresco" comes from the Italian word for "fresh". There are two types of fresco painting. In buon, or pure, fresco, the paint is applied to a wet, or fresh, coat of plaster. The pigments used in these paintings form a permanent bond with the wall surface when dry. The other type of fresco painting is called secco, or dry. in which the paint is bonded to the wall with adhesive binder flakes. This type of fresco is, however, not permanent. Fresco painting highly popular during the Renaissance period. Today, true fresco is rarely used due to its susceptibility to humidity and weathering.
