Video #2: Multi-Level Carving Techniques
Sandblast glass carving techniques produce beautiful 3-dimensional carvings in any type of glass, flat or round.Single stage, two stage and multi-stage (or multi-level) carving techniques are thoroughly explained and demonstrated on this 1 hour, 27 minute tape. Learn everything you need to know to carve glass, including analyzing the design for proper carving sequence, how to carve different types of designs, equipment and supplies necessary. There are also sections on using pre-cut resists, carving techniques using an on-site blaster and safety considerations. The tape is based on an explanation--presentation--demonstration model.
Each technique is first explained, then the project meant to show that technique is presented and demonstrated step by step. The tape starts out with the simplest one-stage carving technique and progresses to increasingly more complex multi-stage techniques and projects. Four full size patterns for projects presented on the tape are included when you purchase the tape, so you can follow along with the tape to quickly learn to carve your own projects. Pre-cut stencils of all designs on the tape are available on a variety of resists.
Important note: Our book, Glass Etching II: Carving Techniques & Designs, provides printed instruction that corresponds to the information on this tape, so they can be used together for the best results possible. The book also has 27 full color photos of finished carved glass. Carving designs are really hard to find, so this book also has over 70 designs for multi-stage carving. Design Book 1 has many more carving and surface etching designs.
