    The Decorative Applications Of Sandblasted And Engraved Glass

    Glass engraving has been around for many years and is an art form that has become increasingly popular in recent times. It’s a dedicated skill that could take hours to bring to life depending on the design and techniques involved. However, with more and more people looking at designing bespoke pieces for their spaces, engraving and sandblasted glass techniques are now at the forefront of decorative glass options.

    Well designed, architectural glass windows and mirrors are proven to enhance the flow of natural light into the buildings. Also, depending on the structure, glass suppliers can dial in the right kind of glass to maximize views to the outdoors while maintaining optimal aesthetics and saving energy. So today we take a look at the two types of glass design that are increasingly being used in interior spaces: Sandblasted Glass and Engraved Glass.

    Sandblasted Glass 

    Sandblasting is an abrasive treatment in selected areas of a glass surface to create opacity and texture of a desired effect. Glass suppliers also use a special anti-fingerprint protective coating for longer-lasting effects. However, the areas of glass that don’t need to be engraved will be covered with a masking material and a fine grit abrasive medium is ‘blasted’ at high pressure onto the surface of the glass.

    Depending on the type of design and the intricacies involved in making it, skilled glass engravers will use hand-cut stencils and a mixture of different engraving techniques to create some very interesting results. Quite often the sandblasting technique is used on an industrial scale for mass production of glass designs.

    In terms of usage, sandblasted glass is a good option if you are looking at privacy in homes or offices without wanting to block the light. In other words, sandblasted glass provides enough light in a room without letting anyone take a peek.

    Engraved Glass

    As the name suggests, engraving onto glass usually uses a laser, which engraves a design onto your glass. This method is often used for bulk orders which include company logos, merchandise or duplication of images. However, glass engraving has taken up a sweet spot in designing home interiors as well. If you’re looking at creating personalized designs or mirrors for your home or workspace, glass engraving is your best bet.

    While engraving is usually done for tempered glass, deep leveled engraved can also be done for non-tempered glass. It can be applied to laminated glass with any kind of thickness too. With the kind of engraving machines available today, you can ask your local glass supplier to hook you up with everything from personalized engraved decanters to mirrors, windows and so much more. And if you’re looking to personalize your home space, you can opt for personalized tableware, photo frames and display stands. The options are endless.

    While some might consider glass engraving and sandblasting a dying art form, the truth is far from it. It’s a classic and unique way to up your design space with bespoke, one of a kind pieces that reflect your own personality and mood.
