Reverse glass gilding is a magical process. 4-5 layers of pure gold is applied to the back of the glass, once the size is dry, the gold stretches to produce a mirror like finish that is very eye catching the white areas are actually clear glass and the white background can be seen through it. the box frame gives the portrait a 3 dimensional feel and the illusion of floating in the air.
The halftone image is comprised of lines rather than continuous tones. When viewed from a distance, the lines blur and blend together, creating the illusion of continuous shapes and shades. At a distance the image is clear and almost photographic whereas close up the image is made up of bold lines.
