I’ve always loved Khokhloma style (хохлома) and decided to make a ton of bookmarks and objects with my version of the technique. Mainly because I can’t reproduce the exact thing, needing ovens etc.. These are painted on wood, the metallic colours being pigments on oil base or brass leaves. The colours are acrylics or oils.
These patterns can make awesome borders for books , etc, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you need a few kilometers of them ;)
