By request I'm going to post some of the glass and silversmith work I do, especially Christmas ornaments ...which I'm VERY sick of making. I'm making some 1911 themed ornaments tommoro night, (must finish order first). They will be individual 5" spheres, or sets of 2.5", 4", 6". I will be sandblast resist etching a few different 1911 related designs, depending on how they come out, I have a cheap vynil plotter I modified out of a cricket cutter. Some of the first will feature just a plain Jane sillouette of a 1911a1, from the side, on a sphere which I will first coat with vaporised gold and silver, a technical know as fuming, the sandblasting is called Graal. (If you go thru layers of colored glass). A few others will feature smaller sillouettes, snowflakes, and parts, sear, hammer, trigger, barrel bushing,easily recognizable parts. If those work out, I'll try 6"-12" beveled glass plates with original 1911a1 blueprints engraved, probably need photo-resist to make that work, I could do it on big glass mugs too. By drilling a small hole in the bottom of the plates, I can add an led light, which will make the design pop, and glow in low light. (The guy that buys most of my stuff, always forcing me to take $20 for $30-35 wholesale pieces owns a Glock, I saw the box the other day . Knew he was a ****....) Wish I had thought of this before Thanksgiving, I've been making ornaments since August. Anyway, here are some random marbles, ornaments, and pendants I'm working on this season. To see some real cool glass guns, check out some by one of my teachers, Google "Robert Michelson Glass Guns" Please post your crafts too.
