I guess you could call this a very through handbook on the
processes of glass surface etching, carving and shading. Filled with great color and B&W process photos, charts and drawings it gives you the information to develop a working knowledge of the basics and heading toward the more involved pieces.

I have taken a number of their classes and courses at the sign Business shows over the years. They are as complete in their classes as in this book and in their wonderful dvd's. Which you can rent from glass etching DVD's rentals
