Newbie from the Buckeye State

Postby George » March 18th, 2015, 2:33 pm

Hello everyone, I'm a novice at this hobby but I have been graduating myself from on facet to another since 2013. I really enjoy the manipulation of glass and started by drilling holes in recycled bottles making incense burners. Then I decided the bottles without labels needed artwork. I started high speed etching, moved into using etching cream and now I'm into micro-sandblasting. My goal is to learn to put pictures on glass and I have already seen some of the great work from the members here. My current problem to solve is purchasing equipment that I really need at the right price. I'll probably be an info sponge early on but hope to be a viable contributor in time.
