exclusive paintings on brass, 24 carat gold plated, studded with original Swarovski crystals; art installations and bronze sculptures

The art of brass paintings

The paintings are characterized by vibrant colours, fine lines and intricate detailing on brass. The clarity and accuracy of lines and flawless demarcation of compositional elements highlight exceptional skill and precision.

A unique innovation, the paintings on brass involve transferring and then etching contemporary and traditional subjects on brass sheets. A multi stage process, it requires remarkable dexterity to ensure that the colours are separated during application and remain distinct. The paints that are used are special stoving enamels which are mixed to achieve desired colours. The etching and colouring is manually done. On completion of colouring, the plates are transferred to industrial ovens at temperatures between 180-250 degrees centigrade to ensure permanent fixing of colours.

Once the firing is completed, the painting is scrubbed, lacquered and buffed for shine and lustre. The process takes about 30 stages to complete. The painting can be treated with gold, silver and copper plating to achieve various finishes. With an exclusive tie-up with Swarovski Elements, the embellished brass etching is a handcrafted work of art which comes with a lifetime guarantee. In fact, it will last forever. Every artwork is accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity.
