What kind of glass craft/art is this?
« on: August 03, 2006, 10:46:42 PM »
hi guys!

need help, please.

my friend sent me a photo of this really cute key chain made of glass with a small hand-drawn image inside it. here's the link to the photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vintage_finds/206035429/

all i know is that, the thin piece of paper is melted with the translucent glass. then the glass is smoothened out, and shaped accdg to desire.

any info, pls? thanks!

Hi Tammy welcome,
it would be nice and could be helpful if you'd adjust your profile to some more information - thank you!

Are you really sure it is glass please?

How about the acrylic/plexi version?

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

It can't be paper as that would vaporise and probably create small bubbles. The text could be a transfer print. Alternatively it is just glued together.
