Vintage look up-cycled domino miniature art pieces.
I paint straight onto dominoes and seal with an epoxy resin which gives each piece a high gloss finish. Comes in a beautiful gift box and would make a very nice gift for someone special or a top treat for yourself!
Here are a collection of varied styles to choose from. A more unusual gift that evokes conversation when people realize that the piece is a domino.
Each domino is made into pendants, brooches or art miniature objects.
Miniature art has been around for years and became most popular during 15th – 16th century. A miniature must be small enough to hold in the palm of your hand. They were once used like a photograph, as they were easily transportable. Royal marriage negotiations took place only after the study of a miniature portrait painting of the potential bride. Miniatures were also given as tokens of friendship, loyalty and love.
“Artists should wear only clothes of silk and they should not speak or even breath over their work to avoid sparkling a spittle” Nicholas Hilliard. Absolutely Nicholas… I couldn’t agree with you more!!
