As both an artist and an animal lover I wanted to offer a line of engraved art that would appeal to people who cherish their companion animals.
These are not machine or laser engraved. Each portrait is a unique work of art lovingly hand crafted.
The process is very simple. All you need to do is email me a photo that you want the portrait based on. I will email you your invoice and payment options. Because of the nature of this work a 4 to 6 week lead time is required.
Hand Engraved portraits with etched name on glass are $250.00
Hand Engraved portraits without name on Optical Crystal are $350.00 Unfortunately due to its hardness I cannot etch the name on crystal – this would require laser etching which is offered by most engraving and awards shops.
Shipping and Handling are included.
Below are 2 samples of portraits on 4 x 6″ beveled glass.
Etching is accomplished by sandblasting media, in this case 180 grit aluminum oxide, onto the glass using a specially designed film mask. Creating and developing the film is an art in itself.
