Decoupage under glass is a variation of the 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 cutout prints. This process of coating the inside of glass vessels with engravings or paintings gives them the appearance of painted ware.

In potichomania process, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish, saving the step of varnishing. The original intent as to recreate Greek and Etruscan vases by simulating rare and expensive Sevrés porcelain.

    This tray measures approximately 4 x 6 inches. The relative thinness of the tray – just over 1/8” thick – belies the complexity of the potichomania process. Each of our trays is comprised of a glass tray, three layers of 28# paper, four coatings of varnish, and finished with two coats, each of paint and clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom in order to protect your home surfaces.
