    Tips On Drying Blown Glass Sculptures

    Blown glass sculptures with long thin areas, curved points and narrow openings can take a long time to dry. You will have better results if you do not hurry, but you can try this trick to speed up the process.

    WARNING: Acetone is FLAMMABLE! Do not use near an open flame, spark, electrical hot plate or any other source of ignition.

    • Rinse the newly mirrored surface with distilled water.
    • Drain out as much water as possible.
    • Pour in a moderate amount of acetone. The acetone will displace the water and tend to drive it out.
    • Rotate to cover all the surfaces with acetone.
    • Set the container - open side down - to allow the acetone/water mix to drain out completely.
    • Allow time for all the acetone and water to dry before lacquering the surface. Any moisture trapped under the lacquer can discolor the mirror over time.
