Glomy // Mirror
GOLDEN FRENCH INSPIRATION
- – -
The Verre églomisé or back painting technique dates back to Egyptian times but it was named after Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711-1786) who was responsible for its revival in modern times. Glomy was a frame maker at the court of King Luois XV and Louis XVI and began using this technique during the second half of the eighteenth century.
The technique consists of applying gold leaf to a glass substrate (plate, cup or any other object that can be decorated) using an oil-based adhesive. The gold leaf is then decorated with enamel or engraved with a metallic point.
Arte Veneziana applies verre églomisé techniques on different products using different styles;
Venetian, French, modern or contemporary. As an alternative to verre églomisé, it is possible to decorate mirrors with enamel (avoiding the gold leaf coating).
