Excellent Work of Art! Amazing effect from a gold inlay with shining lights making an incredible 3D effect! 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.

 

 

 

 

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.
