This is a Make Your Own Glass project that you can take home the same day that you make it. In this introduction to the art of sandblasting, all ages are invited to be creative and apply any design to glass cups and dishes using stickers and tape.  After your sticker design is complete, you will work with Museum staff members to make the design permanent by sandblasting your glass.  Sandblasting creates a frosted look by scarring the surface with fine grains of sand propelled by compressed air.  After the sandblasting process is complete we will wash the stickers off to reveal your permanent design. No heating or cooling is required for this activity, and you can take your creation home with you as soon as it's done.
