Glass Carving

Print this article  
By Judith Serrao, UAE [ Published Date: January 6, 2007 ]

Materials required

Glass – (size to be proportionate to picture you need to carve)
Glossy- black coloured adhesive paper
Art knife
White & silver sparkle glue
White carbon paper


Draw the outline of the glass on the black adhesive paper.   Cut the black adhesive paper and affix to the glass.   Draw or trace the picture with white carbon on the adhesive paper-  the outlines will be marked with white (as the carbon paper is white).

With the carving knife remove all the black adhesive paper inside the outlines.  The white outlines only should remain.  After the full picture has been carved,  fill up the picture with the silver sparkle glue and let it dry for 24 hours.

The picture can then be framed.
