Micro-Raman spectroscopy, Py/GC/MS and GC/MS were applied for the characterization of pigments and binders used in the 19th century wall paintings ascribed to the work of Macedonian iconographer, Dicho Zograph. A rich palette of pigments, both natural/mineral and synthetic were identified, while the binders were mainly a mixtures of proteinaceous materials, linseed oil and pine resin.

A comparison between the pigments and binders identified in this study and those suggested in Dicho's Painter's Manual (from 1851) showed that some materials, both inorganic and organic ones, had not been mentioned in his written source.
