Sandblasting

Sandblasting is a mechanical process that imitates, little pieces of glass, which nature produces, sometimes found on the beach.

The sand is pushed through a jet at high pressure. The surface of the glass records the rendering leaving it opaque.
With the wise use of templates the depth of the abrasion is regulated, creating a sophisticated effect of base relief.
