My parents own a custom sandblast art business (on glass and mirror) and as far as I know – once the image is there, it’s there. Granted, that’s with sandblasting, which is permanent, and may not be the “engraving” method used here.

To my knowledge, there is no way to lighten the image once it’s been set – and as far as I know, that’s the only color blasted images on glass can be (unless you backblast and paint mirror, which is not applicable here). Honestly, I think the contrast looks fine and completely normal, but that may be because that’s what I’m used to seeing.

Not sure if this helped at all, but let me know if you have other questions. Smile

To be honest, I agree with Christie.  I really like it as is.  I don’t think it’s a huge contrast.

I have to ask you about your corks.  We’re planning on using them as holders for place settings like it looks like you’re doing as well.  How did you make the bottom flat?  We haven’t begun to try that yet.

Thanks!  We have TONS of corks, we drink a lot of wine, and I know owers of several wine places around who I’m sure would give us some corks.  Thanks!  This is a project we’ll work on this weekend.
