How can a decorator make the most of their time in the sandcarving process?

It is always a good idea to gang up certain processes. By this, I mean do all of one step at one time: clean all glass, apply all stencils, remove the cover sheet and tape, then blast, and finally clean. Adhering to this procedure allows you to develop a certain speed and flow, letting you get the step done in the most efficient way rather than starting and stopping along the way. As long as each segment of the production can be carried out in a continuous flow, the work is accomplished quickly.
