Before we start
The first and most important thing you have to do when engraving on glass is to take the right safety measures since engraving glass can create hazardous glass dust, which can be harmful to your health if inhaled.
To ensure your safety, it's crucial to take the necessary precautions. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Work in a well-ventilated area. This will help to reduce the amount of glass dust in the air and keep you safe.
- Wear protective gear. A dust mask, eye protection, and gloves can go a long way in preventing injury or illness from glass dust.
- Clean up thoroughly. After you've finished engraving, be sure to clean up any glass dust that may have accumulated on your work surface and in the surrounding area.
- Dispose of glass waste properly. Avoid sweeping or vacuuming glass dust, as this can cause it to become airborne. Instead, use a damp cloth to wipe up the dust and dispose of it in a sealed container.
By following these simple precautions, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable engraving experience. Remember to always prioritize your safety when working with glass dust, and if you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to consult with a professional.
