Paint-on-glass animation

Paint-on-glass animation is a technique for making animated films by manipulating slow-drying oil paints on sheets of glass. Gouache mixed with glycerine is sometimes used instead. The most well-known practitioner of the technique is Russian animator Aleksandr Petrov; he has used it in seven films, all of which have won numerous awards.
