Via Lattea Collection

The Milky Way, sometimes called simply the galaxy, is the galaxy in which the solar system is located. It's name is a translation of the latin via lactea, which derives from the greek ΓΑΛΑΞΙΑΣ (Galaxias or Galaxiases), both of which refer to the pale band of light formed by the galactic plane as seen from earth. Some sources hold that, strictly speaking, the term milky way should refer exclusively to the band of light that the galaxy forms in the night sky, while the galaxy should receive the full name milky way galaxy, or alternatively the galaxy. However, it is unclear how widespread this convention is, and the term milky way is routinely used in either context. Marlen had the pleasure to create a new Limited Edition of just 38 piesces in fountain and 28 pieces in roller dedicated to the world of the astronomy. We used the special technique of hot enamel for representing the paintings. Hot enamel uses a process involving pulverized crystals that are liquified at temperature between 1,200 and 1,500 degrees fahrenheit. Numerous stages are required to produce the final product. The subject is first painted on a background of clear enamel using pulverizes colored crystals mixed with essential oils. The pen is then fired several times to fix the painting. Once the desired result has been achieved, the miniature is covered with a layer of transparent enamel and polished.
