Sand Blasting Intensive – New!

Explore creating glass art using the sandblaster. We’ll focus on several different techniques including stage blasting on plate glass, blasting flash glass to dig below the top layer of color, layering blasted pieces to create a dimensional look, fire-polishing, and glue-chipping. These pieces can stand alone or be added to a stained glass panel in the future.
