    A ....... "Mona Lisa's" smile isn't the only mysterious thing about her. The painting is a classic example of the sfumato technique -- oil painting in which colors are softly blended and toned down to erase transitions and subtly draw the eye from dark to light. Sfumato uses several translucent glazes to achieve this effect -- a sort of smoky, hazy treatment without visible edges or lines. The technique creates a veil of see-through shadow that dims the brightest colors and softens the darkest tones. Correggio, Leonardo and Raphael subtly smoothed their paintings with sfumato technique.
