POTCHOMANIA ~Decoupage Under Glass~ Decoupage under glass is a variation of the Potichomania process.
(Potiche meaning oriental vase and manie referring to mania).
This art form was practiced in mid-19th century England
and refers to the craze of decorating clear glass vases with
cut-out prints. The process of coating the inside of glass
vessels with engravings or paintings gives them the
appearance of painted ware. In this style, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish. All of the images are applied in reverse
in order to build the artwork from front to background.
