How to Choose Glass for Glass Art : Using Glue Chip Glass for Glass Art


We have been going through a selection of
glass to pick out our choice for our next art piece and I wanted to share with you specifically
about Glue Chip. If you have been doing glass anytime or for any length of time you already
know about Glue Chip. If you haven’t, it’s probably one of the cheapest glasses that
you can buy and it’s used in a lot of different things so it’s a very versatile glass. The
reason it is called Glue Chip is because it’s apart of how it’s made, it’s a process. There’s
a glue that’s placed on the glass and then chipped off of there and or just removed and
it leaves these really nice chip textures on the other side. This is the clear side,
the side that you would cut and if you turn it a look at this side you can see all the
nice crevices and it’s it just looks kind of like ferns growing or like snowflakes.
It’s got this really unique pattern, there’s a larger Glue Chip which gives you these larger
variations and there’s a smaller Glue Chip as well that you can chose but this is the
red and I wanted to share with you another color. This is the peacock, these kind of
blues, greens, reds, clears and it’s a wonderful wonderful piece of glass to work with.
