Untitled Document

A very beautiful lacquer box with exquisite and sharp details painted with a one hair brush. Wonderful colors blend into each other making it a one well-designed and unique composition. The box itself is made of the highest quality papier-mache and is covered with three layers of lacquer. Paper-mache does not absorb the paint and it is also protected by a thick layer of lacquer. This way colors will not fade and will stay vivid and bright for many dozens of years to come.

Artists from Fedoskino, the birthplace of Russian lacquer miniatures, use a more realistic style of painting than the other villages. They also use oil paints for their drawings instead of the egg-based temperas. Three to four layers of the oil paints, along with seven coats of lacquer, are applied to each box before it is completed. This layering brings out a radiant quality in the drawings and the colors seem to emanate from within. Sometimes, an underlay of gold leaf or mother of pearl enhances this radiance and adds a lovely iridescence of its own.
