Glass painting, Kunming
Kunming glass painting refers to the painting done on the reverse side of a sheet of glass by adding details to a designed pattern. The glass painters use the painting skills of traditional Chinese painting, canvas and gouache to paint the sceneries of mountains and rivers, places of historic interest, birds, animals, fish, rare flowers and grasses. After the painting is done, a layer of gloss varnish is used to coat the painting without affecting the transparency and the depth of color. Kunming glass painting is simple, colorful and well-organized. The painting will not discolor forever and is a good kind of home decoration.
