Sans Soucie Art Glass Studios frosts / etches and carves the glass surface by
sandblasting the glass. “ ETCHED GLASS” is a generic term for the treatment of the glass surface to diffuse transmitted light, reduce glare and give the glass a white, frosted appearance.
SOLID FROST PINSTRIPE EFFECT SANDBLAST. A single-stage sandblast, the design elements are 1/8″ clear pinstripes and the background is Frosted Glass. Price for this design Solid Frost $50
2D SURFACE ETCH SANDBLAS: A “multi-stage” sandblast where the artist sandblasts the design, one small segment at a time. Similar to 3D Carved, a Dimensional Surface Etching 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, and is NOT cut deep into the glass, like 3D Carved Glass. Price for this design element in this effect is $250
3D SCULPTURE CARVED SANDBLAST: A “multi-stage” sandblast 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. Price for this design element in this effect is $350.
