The first thing I do upon receiving your custom essence or illustration request is to create a draft of the design and determine how to best integrate it with the product to be engraved. This step is important as it sets the tone for the remainder of the project, and make sure that the end product is well balanced based on its shape, colors, and any other existing decorations (e.g. labels). The calligraphy or illustration of your choice is then carefully engraved free-hand using a hand-held micros motor drill. This handy tool allows me to work freely within my own home studio as well as on-site, with no need for an outlet.
After the engraving is completed, the design can be filled with various metallic wax finishes. The 5 colors I have available include: Antique Gold, Grecian Gold, Autumn Gold, Spanish Copper and Silver Leaf. Metallic wax finishes are only ideal for display products, and not glassware that will be heavily used and washed.
