NB: The term Eglomise is originally from France where it has become synonymous with gilded glass. Thus verre is glass + an églomisé comes from Glomy, which is the last name of an 18th-century Parisian picture-framer. Verre églomisé is a process in which the back side of glass is gilded with gold or metal leaf. Through a processes, the metal is adhered using a gelatin adhesive, which results in a mirror-like, reflective finish. The metal leaf may be applied using oil-based adhesives to achieve a matte finish. Alternatively, the gilding may be combined with reverse painting on glass. The technique creates rich, shimmering and beautifully reflective pieces of artwork.
