Cameo style engraving on glass
OK, so I felt like trying out something a little different... cameo style engraving on glass.
This small oil/vinegar bottle first had the hibiscus graphic masked off, then was sandblasted quite deeply (about 1.5-2mm) to leave the hibiscus standing above the background. The hibiscus was then drill engraved (using a range of burs, no diamonds though) and finally polished.
Many hours of work, and a most enjoyable challenge!
White these techniques would be best used on colour overlay crystal this has worked well as a practice piece.
