- These Italian coins are hand painted to prefection. The artist applies color initially to outline the design, followed by a high tempered firing process. The firing process is repeated after each color is applied. The hand-painting process for each piece varies, some taking as long as two days to complete. In the final stage, in order to protect the delicate hand painting, the artist applies and bakes-on a covering of space age resin, which also adds depth and luster to the item while providing a lifetime of protection to the piece.
Because all of the enamels are mixed by hand at the moment of application, no two pieces are ever exactly identical, making each item truly an original. The hand-painted coin is a gift or keepsake to be treasured forever.
