The word lazure means a glaze of colour, originally a glaze of blue.

I’m a professional decorator who specialises in lazure painting; a glazing technique in which layers of translucent colour are applied to a white surface.

I fell in love with lazure when I first saw it in Botton Village many years ago…

Lazure painting developed out of the teachings of Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925)

For fun I take photo’s with my Samsung mobile – gc-photo-art.com

I write the occasional poem –  butterflyinachineselampshade.wordpress.com

And this year I finished a Writing for Screen & Stage course at Regent’s University, London.

  1. Hi Gary,
    I am absolutely in love with Lazure painting technique. Even today. I was with my family at the Rudolf Steiner school in Manhattan for the school fair.
    I would like to paint my children’s rooms but I don’t know who can do it for a reasonable fee.
    I wonder if you would have a referral? Or is this the kind of work you do?
    Kindest regards,
