Glass Etching II: Carving Techniques and Designs
by Norm Dobbins and Debra Oxley, 72 pp.
This book provides complete instruction for the multi-stage
carving technique of abrasive glass etching. Topics
include: How to obtain the best type of artwork for
carving, analyzing the design for correct sequence of
blasting, controlling the shapes carved into the glass,
dealing with intermediate challenges, selection and use
of equipment and materials, and safety procedures.
The book also features 27 full color photos of finished
projects and over 70 designs suitable for small gift
items to large table tops and glass doors. All designs
in the book may be ordered as pre-cut stencils on a
variety of resist materials.
Even if you are already competent in glass carving,
you know how difficult it is to find patterns to carve.
Just using one of the patterns in this book makes it
more than worthwhile...
