In Response To: Glue Chip (Jordan)

The cheepest way to get glue chip glass is to make it yourself. The basic formula is to lightly sandblast the glass and coat it with hot hide glue. Once it has dried completely use a propane toarch turned down very low to cause the glue to harden and curl up in little chips, it will actualy pull the face off the glass in frost like patterns. Be sure to wear gloves and over-alls and tight fitting goggles, the chips can fly a ways, injury is possible! But the results are fascinating and fun, best of all it's one more thing you can do yourself. I don't remember all the details on this, my experience is years ago, I will check my notes and see if I have neglected any points, if so I will come back later. If you try it let us know how it turns out.
