So Denubug from the Cricut Circle Forum posted about a great deal on compressors that could be used with Copic markers for airbrushing. Well, I managed to get a compressor, but instead of using it for airbrushing, I picked up a sandblasting gun. This is my first project etching glass by sandblasting:
I used the Sans Serif cartridge to cut out "DIANE" from some outdoor grade vinyl, weeded out the letters and applied the remaining vinyl to the jar. I taped around the vinyl on the jar to protect a greater area and I then blasted the jar with the using the sandblasting gun filled with Aluminium Oxide sand. I am impressed with how much deeper of a etch I got using the sandblasting gun over etching cream.
Here's the type of sandblasting gun I used and a picture of the homemade blast cabinet I made from a plastic storage box:
Finally, here's another picture of the jar filled with some peanut butter cups:
Thanks for looking!
