Here I am in my glasspasser sandblasting cabinet, etching a glass mug. Yup, that's right, one at a time each one is carefully blasted evenly, paying attention not to concentrate on any one specific spot. Why is the glass mug upside down? ...very observant ... I am using my hand to protect the exposed handle of the glass.
