Sand engraving and sand carving, also known as sandblasting, is used to produce a deep etch, surface frost, or, somewhere in between. It is a technique used since glass as an art medium was first used. Sandblasting into glass creates a three dimensional effect which gives life, effect and tone to clear glass. It can be used for signage, to decorate room dividers, corporate logos, certificates and awards, and special gifts.
Tutor: Barry Richters
Choose from a number of beginner designs to create your sandblasted piece. Each of these designs will teach the necessary sand engraving and carving techniques to create pieces that can be used in lamp shades, leadlight windows, sun catchers or on wine glasses or other decorative glass items. Sandblasting is also useful for cold working kiln fired projects.
