Clear & Colored Impressed Acid-Etched
Glass Paperweight Button
First I made the very detailed cane for the tentacles, bundled them together
& pulled them out for the Octopus image.
Then, assembled the pieces in layers to create this 3D Ocean scene
with a turquoise dichroic glass base.
The button is impressed into a scalloped optic mold for a sea shell border effect.
Finally, after the button cools in the kiln, the outside border is acid etched to look like sea glass!
Made at the torch on a brass button shank.
Signed & Dated Button Measures: 7/8" Round x 1/2" deep
