How to Choose Glass for Glass Art : Using Water Glass for Glass Art


I’m actually going through describing some
of the glasses that are available for you to choose for your art glass projects. As
we’re doing, today and I wanted to show you water glass. Now water glass is a very nice
smooth glass, easy to cut almost like butter. It’s called water glass because it almost
gives the appearance of a water surface. There’s a slight texture to it but nothing major,
this one actually has streaks in it so you can see the two different colors formed together.
It’s kind of a aqua-green color and then here I have a solid water glass just that very
beautiful majestic or sapphire blue water glass and these are just they’re wonderful
wonderful pieces of glass. Now you wouldn’t really want to use something like this in
a Mosaic because in your Mosaics you can see the surface behind unless you were using a
plate glass behind your Mosaic. On the Terracotta, if you’re doing a Terracotta plant holder
or something, you wouldn’t want to use this unless you use a special backing that would
mirror that because you would see the texture behind it. But for all of your leaded pieces
and your Foiled pieces this is a beautiful glass to use and it will allow a lot of light
to come through.
