Description

This inside-art glass cowboy boots ornament is 3″ in diameter and comes in a silk-covered, padded box. Each is hand-painted from the inside using a process called reverse glass painting and no two are exactly alike.

The painting is done from the inside through the holes at the top and bottom of the glass globe using special narrow brushes and pointed sticks. Each piece has the design detail applied in layers over several days. Each image in this exacting art form is actually painted in reverse order on the glass. The finishing details of the painting must be put on the glass first, and must be done accurately as this is immediately covered with the next phase of the painting. This means the smallest finishing touches are done first, with the background completed last. For each ornament the process is the same,  each one takes three days to complete. Bolihua (reverse glass painting) has been an art form in China since the early 18th century.

The box is silk-covered on the outside and padded on the inside to protect the glass ornament.  The box provides a beautiful gift presentation and the perfect solution for both storage and shipping.
