We are excited to announce our newest workshop!
For 20 years, The Faux Finish School's ultimate goals have been to provide students with the tools and knowledge necessary for success....
3 Day Verre Eglomise - The Art of Reflection
Verre Eglomise, from the French term meaning "glass gilded"is a process in which the back side of glass
is gilded with gold or metal leaf.
Learn this centuries old technique with contemporary twists. Few artists know how to do Verre
Eglomise, and fewer know how to translate ancient techniques to use in today's modern living. Learn an
art that dates back to pre-Roman times and make it your own. Verre Eglomise will set you apart from
other artists. Create perfect mirrored surfaces that become stunning works of art. Decorative pieces,
window, door panels, table tops, wall insets, the uses are unlimited!
Verre eglomise takes you out of the realm of decorative painter and makes you a true artisan. Imagine
being able to offer your clients furniture, windows, cabinetry and room dividers that are not only
beautiful but completely unique. It is a spectacular up-sell for the discerning client who wants
something that sets them ahead of the trend. Why have a plain glass table top when you can have a
piece of art? Why have plain glass cabinet doors when you can create spectacular images that still
maintain desired transparency? Transform simple cabinet fronts into stunning reflective images!
In this complex 3 day class, we will be working with 23K gold, metal leaf, mica powders, pigments, gels,
solvents and a variety of paint products. Each student will have the opportunity to work with standard
stencils and masking stencils as well as learn freehand techniques. Designs can be as simple or
elaborate as desired. Recapture this obscure art form and make it your own! We will complete 3-5
pieces on glass pieces ranging from 8"x 8", 8"x10" , 12" x 12". Each piece will have a minimum of 4
layers, the maximum unlimited. We will cover backing mounting and transporting methods.
