What is Verre Églomisé?

Verre Églomisé is a French term referring to the process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of glass to produce a mirror finish. The name is derived from the 18th-century French decorator and art-dealer Jean-Baptiste Glomy, who was responsible for its revival.

Tracey Spurgin has taken that concept and interpreted it in metal clay and resin creating spectacular effects.

Start with seeing how to create a metal clay lotus pendant with fine metal clay details. Then learn how to create a simple mold to layer with resin. Tracey shows you all the tips and tricks you need to embellish your piece with an endless supply of ideas like alcohol inks, papers, paints, glitters or gold leaf. The results are stunning.
