Look at how the snow is painted! Look at the winter sunset skies! Amazing effect from a silver 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
