Ivory miniature

A small-format painting drawn with watercolours on little, thin and smooth ivory plates. Thin layers or dots of colour are applied with a fine hair brush. Applying colours or silver foil on the back side of the almost transparent ivory plate, results in fine grey nuances on the plates front side. See also miniature.
