For the past couple of months I have been working on a commission to create 10 glass award plaques for Social Enterprise Gold Mark. Sloe gin recipe 70cl They wanted A4 panels with removable brass engraving plates and use their logo as the main feature of the plaques. Sloe berry gin recipe I created a presentation using Google Sketchup and I decided to use ground glass (frit) for the main logo.


The main logo would be a separate piece of fusing glass which would be laminated onto a base of float glass. Easy sloe gin recipe The removable brass plate would be held in place using strips of brass “U” section, glued on its side top and bottom, so that the brass plate can slide out for engraving. Sipsmith sloe gin recipe The small logo in the bottom-left would be printed onto self-adheasive clear vinyl.

The main logo was made using circular fusing glass and the logo was heavily sand-blasted into the glass. Recipe sloe gin fizz I needed to create a recess for the fusing glue/gel so that the frit would fit accurately within the sand-blasted logo.

There seemed to be a problem with the kiln. Best sloe gin fizz recipe The pieces that were in the middle of the kiln came out okay but most of the pieces did not fire properly and needed to be fired again.

The bases of each plaque was cut and the edges ground and polished and the brass “rails” for the engraving plate were glued with epoxy resin. The best sloe gin recipe A mask covered the base so that we could sand-blast where the main logo would be laminated with Araldite 20/20.

After the lamination had set, the mask was removed and the plaques cleaned up with the vinyl logos cut out and stuck into position.

Here is one of the finished pieces and despite the technical issues I am pleased with the result.

The client was happy as well and even gave me another one-off commission!
