So I've been a glass hound for as long as I could remember, or at least as long as I've been a pothead. One of the things that always sparked an interest was custom etched and blasted pieces. I always thought it added a level of elegance to a piece and somewhat rounded it out. Although I never learned how to blow glass; etching was a way for me to add something to an art that I enjoyed so much. So, fuck it - I decided to learn how to etch and a hobby was born... I started with hand etching, using a rotary tool to literally draw on the glass. Lot's of fun but after a while I realized it wasn't for me. The last thing I needed was any more vibration in my hands lol. Shit, it was like my meds weren't working anymore. So I had to try another route. Next we went with etching cream and acids. Meh...... It really didn't do much for me. I was enjoying the final product but the process was lacking. It wasn't really giving me what I was looking for. Then one night I'm watching a video on youtube in which D-wreck was demonstrating his way of sandblasting. That was it for me. I needed to learn this! It was so fucking cool. I went out and spent a small fortune on books, online lessons, and equipment and let the fun begin. (after I fucked up a bunch of pieces) Lots of time, practice, and broken pieces eventually turned into this. Now, I've only recently started commissioning work. This has been a hobby for a long time and it's only recent that I've started to feel confident enough to work on my friends pieces. I don't have a pricing structure or a real business set up as of yet but being that you guy's are my family I'd love to start spreading my work here. If anyone has questions or has something they may be interested in having me blast please PM me and I promise to work out something simple. I'm going to continue posting pics of work and pics of work being done as I progress. Any other hobbyists out there that want to chime in bring it, I'm always up for a chat and love company. Thanks to my friends and family at FC for always being there for me! I have created an etsy account and currently accept paypal and google wallet. But honestly, my accessory maker status isn't so much to help me make sales or gather business, it's more of me abiding by the FC rules. Once I am truly set up for business you guy's will be the first to know.
