Wythall Window progress….Sandblasting resists

 

16th March 2014 116Whilst I carry on cutting glass for the Wythall Window, I’ve started applying some glue resists to some of the glass I’ve already cut to prepare to do some sandblasting.

The glue shows in the photos as white as it’s still wet and, when dry, I will sandblast the glass pieces to play with the surface finish and/or amount of colour in some of the pieces by removing a thin ‘flash’ of colour from the main body of glass….

In other news..

Apart from some glass choosy-ness, (see earlier post), today was also great day working on a sandblasted screen project with Linda Norris – enjoying the intricacies of computer aided design! I find it much more useful to make a sample, look at it and decide where to go from there but the ‘ole machines do have their uses. These are some images of us making some samples and thinking about layering. The design is in progress but we’re using (amongst other things) tree imagery that we’ve got from walking and taking many photos!
