Sandblasted Cobalt Signs

Post by john stronski » Tue Apr 10, 2018 9:36 pm

I am working on a project that requires Cobalt Blue Glass.They are simple signs with only a sandblasting on the front surface.

The problem is that I cannot find this cobalt glass any where. There is a type of flash glass out there I guess if all fails...

My first choice would be 1/4" flat cobalt sheet with no ripples. About a dozen pieces 6" x 30".
The cobalt blue rich color is similar to the vintage "NOXEMA" face cream jar from the 1950's.

Can anyone please help ? Thank You........

Do an online search for Stained Glass Supplies for a store near you, or online sales.
