NLR Frosted Glass Cup by MATMAN333 NLR Frosted Glass Cup by MATMAN333
A cup I made during school. When our teacher made the foolish decision of letting me loose with a vinyl cutter, computer, and blaster.
A one-of-a-kind frosted glass NLR cup! Enjoy.

So that's how glass can be frosted, with a sand blaster? I though it could also be frosted chemically too.

And that's really cool and really well done. :)

Very fine sand blaster, as to not harm the vinyl.

So the vinyl just protects the glass you don't want etched, right?

I'm sorry if I'm bothering you, I've never had the opportunity to use a sand blaster before. I'm curious as to how the process works.

Ha ha, no it is fine.
You put the vinyl over the places where you don't want it frosted yes, I applied the small "NLR" letters above the moon with a scalpel blade...and in doing so damaged it a little, as you can just see.
But it doesn't spoil the overall effect and it is a nice thing to have.
I'm not sure whether it /was/ a sand blaster, it might of well have been a soda blaster, judging by how fine the blasting substance was.

It uses a finely crushed glass powder. Just thought you might want to know :)
