Frequently referred to as ornaments, eglomise is far more complex than the orbs with which you decorate a Christmas tree. Eglomise is a meticulous art that dates back to the 18th century. The paintings are done inside of the glass, requiring every stroke to be done in reverse, with shadows, highlights, and details to be done first.
