Verre Églomise is reverse painting on glass. In this class we will use simple techniques, and readily available supplies to recreate the Victorian charm "The Lover's Eye" on a vintage optometry lens. "The Lover's Eye" was a style of minature portrait which helped to conceal the identity of the person in the picture, but presents an aura of both intimacy and mystery to the world at large. In this class you will learn how to print and layer paint and gilding to get this "tinsel painted" ( the literal translation of Verre Églomise) effect.
