Reverse glass painting

In Reverse Glass Painting the artist paint on one side of the glass, while it is viewed from the other side. Basically the non- painted surface will be the side that is displayed.
The technique is a little unusual and tricky initially.

There are two tricks involved

First :

We should trace the mirror image of the design if the design is not symmetrical. For eg. The artist signature would be traced as they will be seen in a looking mirror.Because the painting is viewed from the opposite side

Second :

In normal glass painting we make the background first and then the finer details. But in case of Reverse glass painting we will make the finer details first and the the background. For eg If we have to make a hand with jewellery. We would paint the jewellery first and then the hand.One has to keep in mind that whatever appears in the foreground is painted first. Another example is normally we will paint the face first and then the features like eyes, nose, eyebrows and lips whereas in Reverse glass painting the features are painted first followed by the face .
