OUR MISSION: To facilitate communication among glass artists, to encourage education and promote excellence in the glass arts.


The surface of the glass must be roughened up to allow the glue to adhere
to the glass. This roughening is most often done by sandblasting the area
of glass to be chipped. It can also be done by grinding the glass with grit
between the glass to be chipped and another hand-held piece of glass.
The grit should be at least 90 grit, and higher is better.

After this roughening is done clean the glass thoroughly. Use masking tape
to create a dam around the edge of your glass. This will keep the glue from
flowing over the sides of the glass.
