Etched Glass Pantry Doors: Multi-stage Sandblasting

At Sans Soucie Art Glass, we etch and carve our designs into the glass by sandblasting.  The three most popular techniques are what we call a solid frost, which is a single stage sandblast, a dimensional and a 3D carved glass, which are both multi-stage sandblast techniques.

A multi stage sandblast is where the artist sandblasts the design, one small segment at a time, creating a dimensional effect.

In 3D Carved Glass, the sculpted edges illuminate as they pick up and reflect the surrounding light.

A Dimensional sandblast, similar to 3D, has “shaded areas” where the sandblasting fades back out to clear glass.  This creates a beautiful dimensional effect, but the sandblasting  is on the top – surfaceONLY, and is not cut deep into the glass, like 3D.

Solid frosted glass is a one stage, overall sandblast, where the design is made up of thin, clear pinstripes.

Shown here, are multi-stage sandblasted, etched glass pantry doors.
