Pantry Doors with Glass – Chop-Chop Chef Design
This adorable little guy is part of Sans Soucie’s Pantry Door Glass Chef’s Collection. Aptly named “Chop-Chop” Chef, this guy is on the move, getting that platter of food to the table! Shown below in three sandblast effects, this design is a part of the Pantry Door Designer web site, brand new in 2010.
Glass etching can be done a number of ways. At Sans Soucie, we sandblast our designs into the glass. The first and most simple method is the solid frosted glass look, which is a single-sandblast and the quickest and easiest to achieve. The other two methods are much more difficult and take a highly skilled and trained hand to create. The first is dimensional .. which 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 SURFACE ONLY. The third, is 3D Sculpture Carved where the artist sandblast carves the design, one small segment at a time, cutting deep into the glass, creating a sculpted, relief texture of varying depths. The edges of the carved shapes within the image will illuminate and appear whiter and brighter as they pick up and reflect the surrounding light.
