Sandblasting!

Another new toy!
Happily, this one came to us free of charge from someone de-stashing a workshop. It then became a bit like triggers broom as my husband replaced all the worn parts and brought it to a really great condition. He’s rigged up an old vacuum cleaner to collect all of the dust from the sand blasting process, plugged it into the diving compressor and airbank, replaced the light and the top screen!
It works very well, and we were able to make this effect on a slumped bottle as a test.
