The amber color is airbrush faded about 5" down in the top section of the clear center panel, the rest of the panel is left clear glass, with the smalt panel is behind it.

Lookin' good, Rich!

It is hard to take good pictures of this stuff.
Mine looks better in person.
Looks like you added some additional "hard line" detail in the boats.
Look forward to seeing your second run also.

I would be lead to believe that the texture on the Caldwell's lettering is a "spounged" acid resist, like asphaltum, into the open area of the letter centers, then a face up liquid acid emboss.....

I typically do most my stuff on 1/4" plate glass. Every now and then I get a rejected piece of "sign size" tempered glass, sometimes 3/8" thick, sometimes 1/2", but they get rather heavy.

Re: Toughened glass

Nah.... you won't see any difference in the way "toughened" glass acts as opposed to regular annealed float glass. Although you can't depth carve it, and a resulting glue chip pattern is less desireable than what you'd get on float glass.
