Portuguese term or phrase: impasto (em pt-pt, por favor)
Caros colegas,
Alguém sabe a tradução deste termo para pt-pt? Já corrie tudo ao meu alcance e não consigo encontrar a tradução disto que deve ser muito simples para quem saiba algo de pintura. É uma técnica de sobreposição de camadas de tinta que torna a representação plástica "pastosa".

Impasto is a technique used in painting where paint is laid on the canvas very thickly, usually thickly enough that the brush or painting knife strokes are visible. Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas.

Impasto features strongly in many oil paintings, and is also possible, though rarely used, in acrylic paintings. It is not possible in watercolor or tempera owing to the inherent thinness of these media.

Impasto was used by Rembrandt and Titian, both of whom often juxtaposed it with more delicate painting It is more prominent in later works, however, Vincent van Gogh using it frequently. Still more recently, Frank Auerbach has used such heavy impasto that some of his paintings almost become three-dimensional.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Impasto is a technique used in painting where paint is laid on an area of the surface (or the entire canvas) very thickly, usually thickly enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture, the paint coming out of the canvas.

Painting oil is most suitable to this technique, due to its thickness and slow drying time. The latter can even be extended with additional linseed oil. Acrylic paint can also be impastoed, though the technique is rarely used because of the faster drying time of this material. Impasto is not possible in watercolour or tempera, owing to the inherent thinness of these media.

Impastoed paint serves two purposes. Firstly, it makes the light reflect in a particular way, giving the artist some control over light. Secondly, it adds some expression to the painting, the viewer being able to notice the strength and speed applied by the artist. While both purposes are commonly accepted today, the first objective was originally sought by masters such as Rembrandt and Titian, to represent folds in clothes or jewels: it was then juxtaposed with more delicate painting. The second objective is more prominent in later works, Vincent van Gogh using it frequently for aesthetics and expression. Still more recently, Frank Auerbach has used such heavy impasto that some of his paintings almost become three-dimensional.

The use of heavy opaque paint can rise to meet your viewer or one can also create a physical depth to the paint that is useful in conducting light and giving a painting the glow that many early Dutch paintings have. These manipulations are called glazing (the use of transparent layers of paint) and impasto (which means heavy paint, but the surface can be modeled as well).

Creating Durable Physical Surfaces: Sometimes, by giving the paint physical three-dimensional attributes, one can communicate something that a flat surface may not allow. Then it becomes necessary to build up the painting surface through either heavy use of the paint (impasto), adding material to the paint (aggregate), or by sculpting the surface before the paint is applied (modeling).

* IMPASTO: Impasto is merely heavy paint. The simplest way to create an impasto surface is to apply paint in large heavy quantities, usually with either a brush or palette knife. Because most oil and acrylic colors have a buttery consistency, this can be achieved by working directly from the tube. This will create an opaque surface. In the past all impasto techniques were done with only opaque color because traditional transparent oil mediums were very fluid. Now there exists a number of commercially-produced, high solid transparent oil mediums which can be used for creating physical surfaces. These materials have the ability to \"hold a peak,\" or dry in the same shape as when applied.
