I've had many requests for more information on how to stage carve
(blast) glass to give objects the appearance of being three dimentional.
Here is a video that I made for a friend and am now including it
for everyone to see.
The process is relatively simple, but takes some planning and strategy
to get exactly the look you would like. Of course, just like any
other phase of glass carving, this takes some time and practice.
Grab a piece of glass and just try stage carving some simple designs
-- even overlapping bars or circles just to start with.
This video is about 16 minutes in all -- I've chunked it up into
three segments to ease the download portion for you. This video
was a follow up to some written instructions I had given a friend
that evidently wasn't very clear. I was told that this video did
the trick for him -- hope it helps you as well!
