I am happy to post about Glenn Kelley. He is sharing a few samples of his sculpted etchings known as sandcarvings which were done on acrylic glass and provides his story on how he got into business doing this. That is always interesting to hear! He shared the below:
We started sandcarving items as Christmas presents almost two years ago. We found your website very informative and took it from there. In January of 2014 we opened our sandcarvings business and have really enjoyed it thus far. Our customers have pushed us along the way to where we are now. We have etched Crystal, Glass, Granite, Marble, Stainless Steel, River Rocks, Wood, & Acrylic. Lately we have stepped up from one shot etching into mult-shot sandcarving. We use 4 mil vinyl for most of our stencil material but have also gotten into using 3 & 4 mil photo resist for more detailed projects. We use 180 grit Aluminum Oxide with 30-45 psi and a 3/32″ nozzle. We have two pencil systems that are portable and a large pressure pot system that we use most of the time. You can see samples of our work on our Facebook page.
