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.
The relative thinness of the tray — just over 1/8” thick — belies the
complexity of the potichomania process. In this style, the glass acts as
both a foundation and protective finish. Each under-glass tray is comprised
of a glass tray, layers of paper, adhesive and paint, and finished with four
coats of clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom
in order to protect your home surfaces.
Care: Spritz with a glass cleaner when necessary, and wipe with a gentle cloth.
