Re: Technique: Simple Lay Up Gives Depth

Marty, Many Warm Glass readers have followed me on Facebook, and requested I post techniques on Warm Glass. They have never seen simple layering before. I am not posting for the old dog, or the fossils. I will never do anything to impress the old guard. I am posting for new folks, who have never hea...

Re: Graphics

Technique: Simple Lay Up Gives Depth

This TECHNIQUE gives lots of DEPTH
(and it should be left in TECHNIQUES and not moved to photos)

Re: Simple lay up gives depth

The photo didn't post.

This simple lay up gives much depth to this piece. There will forever be a space between the top and bottom layers. The orange pieces will forever cast a shadow on the stringers below.
