Did you know that there is an art of decorating mirrors using the eglomise technique?

Verre Eglomise Mirror is a French term that refers to the process of applying designs and gilding to the back of the glass to create a mirror finish. The name itself comes from the 18th century French decorator and art dealer Jean-Baptiste Glomy who introduced this art.

The Glomy technique incorporates the simple technique of applying decorative designs in combinations of plain colors and gilding, originally done on a Eglomise Mirror Large frame. However, over time, the term has come to be used to describe nearly any process that involves repainting and gold-plating of glass.

One of the main historical periods of this art occurred in Italy during the 13th to 16th centuries. Small Glass with designs formed by gilding with carvings applied to relics and portable altars.

The method used was described by Cennino Cennini, and other artists including Jonas Zeuner and also Hans Jakob Sprungli. It has also been used throughout Europe since the 15th century, the technique appearing in paintings, drinking glasses, furniture, and vessels, as well as jewelry.

This technique is also frequently seen in Eglomise Long Mirrors, dial surfaces, and in more recent history as decoration on windows and mirrors. This technique was explored by the Blue Rider group of artists in the 1920s who transformed what was originally folk art into beautiful and valuable art.

Currently, some artists use this technique as an application of fine art. In the process, namely at the plating stage, silver, gold, or other metals are fixed using a gelatin adhesive, after steaming, it produces a layer that has a reflectivity like a mirror.

The designs themselves can be applied in a variety of techniques, but often by painting them upside down before being plated, or by etching the designs in gold-plated layers, even into Eglomise Round Mirrors.

When painting intricate designs like flowers, the artist’s natural methodology is reversed, with the highlights applied first and the background applied last. Metallic strips can also be applied using an oil-based adhesive or gold-sized varnish for a matte finish.

It is also to be distinguished from the term “pressed” gold glass in which gold leaf is glued onto a piece of glass, then often scraped off to form the design, and a subsequent layer of hot glass is then applied and melted down to seal the gold within.
