Sandblasted glass offers a unique and highly customizable look while simultaneously being able to provide privacy and beauty to any setting. The techniques themselves can be performed in a number of ways to create art on the surface of glass.
Sandblasting removes minute amounts of glass causing the characteristic rough surface and translucent quality of frosted glass. During the process high-pressure air is mixed with an abrasive material, and shot under control. This cuts away at the glass surface to create the desired effect. The longer the streams of air and abrasive material are focused in one spot, the deeper the cut, creating the different styles available.
Sandblasting is available in several styles:
- 2-tone surface etch
- 2-tone reverse surface etch
- detail shading
- deep carving/stage blasting
