|Epic Etched Glass specializes in the artistic side of glass etching. All work is done
with sandblasting, never with chemicals.
Glass Etching is broken down into three categories:
Surface Etching, Shading, and Multi-Stage Carving.
Surface Etching is the simplest and least expensive form of sand carving. This type
of etching gives a solid frosting affect to the glass. This is an excellent method of
adding privacy to ones home or office because it is totally opaque when covering
the entire surface of the glass. It allows for a multitude of designs that will fit
The next step up is Shading. Shading is much more difficult to achieve and is more
expensive and time consuming than surface etching. Shading is accomplished by
varying the amount of air and abrasive to give the design a more realistic and three
dimensional look. When done correctly, Shading is absolutely beautiful. As in
Surface Etching, Shading has unlimited possibilities for the home or office.
The last category of glass etching is called Multi-Stage Carving. This is the most
time consuming and expensive of the three processes. Large amounts of glass are
carved out of the design in order to give the finished artwork a very nice three
dimensional look. This very specialized form of glass carving takes a
great amount of skill and years of practice to perfect.
When completed, multi-stage sand carved glass is art in its finest form.
JP Art Glass also can add the extra feature of airbrushed color which creates the
appearance of stained glass without restrictions of the lead lines.
This gives any design an extra dimension.
With these techniques JP Art Glass can create just about any design on glass.
