We have a beautiful and exciting line of new hand-painted buttons from Russia. The artists are located near Moscow, Russia. They are farmers who, in their spare time, paint these exquisite scenes on hand-made buttons. Normally, they only make three of each design, unless someone requests additional buttons of that particular design. Many of the animals they have painted are very unusual and interesting. The buttons with people on them are just as wonderful! They would love to paint a button for you, from a picture or a design of your choice. This would take approximately 1-4 months for special requests. All of the buttons are artist signed on the back.
At this time, we have three different types of buttons painted by these very talented Russians. All of the artists use oil paints with several layers of lacquer applied to the top. This lacquer-technique is the same used in the 18th century. A technique passed on from generation to generation. This is what gives each one that shiny, glossy finish. This also makes them feel so good to the touch.
- The first of the three styles of buttons are the paper-mache. Each lovely scene is hand painted on a hand-made paper-mache button made by local artisians.
- The second style is the paper-mache with mother of pearl inlay. These scenes are primarily landscapes and seascapes. The iridescence of the mother of pearl is left unpainted to allow it to shimmer as water or sky. It is truly an unusual technique and creates quite a beautiful effect.
- The third style is also unusual. It is mother of pearl mounted on German Silver. Many of these are beautiful landscapes.
Each style is made by a different accomplished Russian artist, using their own special talents.
