The Abyss is a double plated, acid etched panel that has then been hand painted. Acid etching is a process whereby acid is used to eat away at flash glass to achieve different shades of colour from the same piece of glass. Wax resist is applied to areas to prevent the acid corroding these areas. Double plating means two layer of glass are put together one behind the other to then achieve more colour variation, with acid etching applied to both pieces the shades and tones of colours that can be achieved is almost endless. Each piece is then hand painted.
