Water-Proof Marking

Anyone who has ever drawn a line on a piece of glass and taken it to the saw or grinder knows how frustrating it is to watch the line wash away long before the grinding or cutting is finished. ┬áSome glass artists resort to using lip balm or Vaseline over the marker. ┬áThe risk is that wax and petroleum – mixed with ground glass – packs into the abrasive surface and reduces the effectiveness of the grinding head or cutting blade.

Here is an alternative that uses no wax or petroleum products:

  1. Score the line with a glass cutter (or engraving tool)
  2. Color the score with a permanent marker
  3. Wipe the glass clean
  4. The marker that remains in the score will not come off when grinding or cutting!
