Keep Glass Unscratched During Sandcarving

Try this solution to avoid scratches

One of the greatest problems all glass decorators face is trying to keep your project pristine and unscratched. Even though there is no such animal as a piece of glass without a single scratch, we want to minimize the occurrence.

When preparing a glass piece for sandcarving, I suggest using the slip sheet of your photoresist to cover the back of the glass and taping it down well; this way you have protection but still are able to see through the piece while blasting. If you are using vinyl or rubber resist, then there is no slip sheet; use some cling wrap instead, but do not forget to tape well.
