Medeival Reverse Painted Tray

The intricate and colorful reverse painted tray will be a much�loved host gift they won't want to put down! In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the reverse side of the glass. The painting is done �back to front:� details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. This technique dates back to the middle ages and requires great care and skill, as the visual �surface� is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected.
