Tinsel Painting was a popular art form in the late 19th Century, a reverse glass painting technique where the negative space is blacked out and a glittering background radiates through the clear, tinted spaces. This was an inexpensive means of creating signs, setting off cherished documents (like photos, mizrachs or ketubahs) or producing decorative wall art and jewelry. We will experiment with transferring images onto glass or sturdy plastic sheets and creating unique framed objects. We’ll also make smaller, wearable items from glass gems. Feel free to bring materials to collage.
