Create a decorative mirror using the jewel like colours and gold used in old reverse painted panels.
This course is a very special introduction to the history and techniques of the ancient art of Verre Eglomisé/reverse painting on glass.
In the Middle ages farmers painted icons in this technique, which were sold to pilgrims as a winter income.
In Victorian to modern times the technique is employed to decorate mirrors and shop signs.
Paint and gold or silver foil are applied to the back of clear glass, creating layers of brightly coloured and reflective designs.
In this two day workshop you can create a decorative mirror from your own design.
No prior experience required. Materials supplied. You will be given a list of tools to bring along.
