Interesting.

I just made some brown spacers out of hot glass, then acid etched them and they came out looking similar to yours.

Fun stuff!

unusual... I wonder why they turned out so similar. Hooray for warm glass!

Well, the opaque brown glass color is close to the same, and the acid-etching gives them a matte look instead of the typical shiny surface.

They are indeed quite unusual. And most other hot glass artists don't make acid-etched brown glass spacers, so you don't see any of them at shows or even online very much.

And thanks for the llama! :aww:

yay! Acid etching is a technique that I would like to try some day as well. I don't think many glass workers use it at all, so I am interested to hear about your experience with it. I will have to try just plain bead making some time with no fancy stuff, because I love the simple shiny beads, but it is nice to try new things
:heart:

I posted a deviation a while back showing some acid-etched Windex blue spacers that I make and talking about the process involved in their creation: Glow deviation.

Thank you.

I actually just sold some of those Windex blue acid-etched spacers like those to a fellow deviant today.
