Hi I did not sign this glass, its too delicate to even think of putting on ebay. I am currious of it if you could see it you would understand some of it is etched and some of it cut the birds are cut, how it was done is a mystery to me as it is so very thin. My husband thought it had to be plastic because it is so thin but it is glass I bought it because I liked it, although I do not usually buy this sort of glass.

Difficult to tell without larger images of the decoration. Could be partly acid etched via transfer or painted on mask, sandblasted with stencils, or etched, and highlights cut. Did I miss any out  ;)

Hi Frank id you wanted i could email you some larger images, they wont let larger ones on here. Thanks for your help. The birds are cut deep the other things are probably done in one of the other ways you mention.

By "larger" do you mean the Kb size or the pixel size?

The info from the Posting Pictures Guidelines says:
Quote
... You will need to ensure your images are less than 125kb each ... ... Images between 150px and 400px aspect will enlarge to an inline image below the post text, and those over 400 px aspect will open in a separate popup window.

So, maybe if larger dimension images (e.g. over 400 pixel in height or width) are too big in Kb size, you could use an optimising (or "quality") function in the image editor to make sure it's beklow 125Kb.

Or you could use the GlassGallery to store larger images (both Kb and pixel size) and simply link to them.
