Lacobel glass - a decorative type of glass in float technology, i.e. a perfectly smooth sheet of flat glass. It is created by covering one side of the glass with a glossy or matt varnish in any colour. Thanks to this, the coating is resistant to any kind of discoloration and damage.
Lewkas (gesso) - (from the Greek word leukos, i.e. white), glue-chalk primer used in board painting and in gilding. It is applied on the icon in the hot, usually in about twelve layers. One layer for one day. The prayer of the ritual then turns its attention to the Apostles (one for each layer). He reminds us of their deeds and asks for intercession.
