Sandblasted horse

I do glass work (when I'm not hanging out with my horse) and thought I'd share a 24" dia. Piece that was inspired by my "Cody". It's sandblasted on flashed glass and titled "Pure Spirit". Hope you all enjoy it!

It's stunning!!!!!

Please, tell me more about this sand blasting technique. I have never heard of it. I love exploring different art techniques. Some, I try for myself, others I leave to the

Well, I use aluminum oxide as an abrasive and you need a sandblaster and a compressor. I use a pretty heavy resist that has a adhesive backing that sticks to the glass. You can draw your design directly on the resist or transfer the design onto the resist from a separate drawing. Then each part of the design must be cut (with an exacto knife) & sandblasted seperately in the proper order so you get the correct foreground/background.
The glass here is "flashed" (meaning the colored glass is a thin coating on clear glass), but you can sandblast on any kind of glass.
Very basically, that's it! I really like it!
You do very nice work yourself!!
