Dave Archer Space Art on glass

Dave Archer Space Paintings on Glass

Dave Archer Space Paintings on Glass.

In reverse glass painting, Dave Archer applies paint to the back side of the glass, which in essence makes the glass his canvas. This is a difficult process that yields effects unparalleled by other painting techniques: vibrant colors, depth of view, even a sense of movement or three dimensions. He mixes media, using a variety of paints and unconventional materials such as metallic powders, crystals, and other substances. Then he hits the mixture with his signature process, using high voltage of electricity to add nebulosity and other fantastic details to his paintings. Amazing technique!
