Reverse Painting on Glass


Hand painted on glass is this reverse painting of a single pink rose with a marble like background of the palest pinks, and blues. The glass is incased with a sage green frame.

Reverse painting on glass is an art form consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image. Another term used to refer to the art of cold painting and gilding on the back of glass is verre églomisé, named after the French decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–86), who framed prints using glass that had been reverse-painted.[1] In German it is known as Hinterglasmalerei.

This is the back of the glass. Reverse painting is placing your brush on the back of the glass to stroke the paint while looking at your strokes from the front. I love how it looks. There is no paint on the front, only the back and gives the appearance of marble. Such a dreamy look in person.
