Roughing It with Alcohol Ink

Volume 32 - Issue 1

A hummingbird and flower design on a piece of head glass etched with etching cream and colored with alcohol inks. The etching cream technique allows etching glass without sandblasting equipment. The glass is finished by framing with hobby or copper came and adding decorative solder to the corners.
