In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the reverse side of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. This technique dates back to the middle ages and requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. Inspired by the cathedrals of Lima.
