Verre églomisé is a French term referring to the process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of glass to produce a reflective surface.
We start with painting a design on the reverse of clear glass. Once we have built up the design, we then apply gold, silver or metal leaf, resulting in a decorative reflective surface. It’s also possible to apply a leaf to clear glass which gives you stunning mirrors of the colour of leaf chosen.
This technique creates wonderful elegant mirrors and reflective surfaces.
Below are just some of the different leafs we use and designs we can create.
