Decoupage under glass is a variation of the Potichomania process
Potiche(referring to mania). meaning oriental vase and manie
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 layers of clear acrylic spray.
