Analog Art #

What makes it ‘analog’ #

So, for OpGuides I’m going to refer to any non-digital art as analog. Traditionally, this art is called, well, traditional. I don’t like this term as it implies that there’s a right ’traditional’ way to do things, and that’s a load of shit. So, whenever I say analog, don’t think about it too much. I just mean not using software and a computer, or, if a computer is used, it’s not necessary for the end product, like 3D printing and the like.

Glass #

While I haven’t done this personally, based on the sheer amount of content on YouTube and hearing others experience making stained-glass isn’t nearly as hard as one would assume

On the other hand, it seems that making from-scractch, hand-blowing, or re-flowing glass trinkets is exceptionally difficult.

I’m not saying any of this to dissuade you from trying anything, just stating where you may want to start.
