Brocade Heart Dichroic Etching

Design, Fabrication, and Text by Carmen Flores Tanis


A set of 3" x 2‑7/8" etched hearts created from black-backed red dichroic glass. A brocade appearance is added to the hearts with an ink pad and rubber stamps. Etch cream is applied to let selected areas of the black backing show through the design, and the project is finished by fire-polishing to soften the edges of the hearts.
