  • Sand Engraved Glassware. Anyone doing it?

    Hi, does anyone do sand engraving of glass, glassware or mirrors etc.?
    I saw an airbrush painter use aluminium oxide to "paint" an image onto glass and duly impressed
    I bought an air eraser, oxide and had a go. I enjoyed it so much I've now got a photo stencil system, blast cabinet, compressor
    and all the gear but not had the time to really get into it.
    I did enjoy frosting glass candle jars and after painting they made super tea light holders. One day given the inspiration
    I'll definately give it another go.

    Yes I've done a few pieces but I don't have my own equipment unfortantly as I don't have the space or the money.

    spend 2 weeks a year away where I borrow someone else's equipement and produce as many pieces as I can.
    So many projects, so little time

          Hi Bert, thanks for that. Love to do more with it. The combination of 'frosting' and airbrushing is fascinating and offers limitless opportunities. I'll join the forum later and look at your FB etc.
