Regarding the statement from the article:
- Decorative patterns may be imposed upon otherwise plain glass by using wax or other resist to retain transparent areas.
There appears to be something wrong with the type of word used here. I didn't correct it, though, because I am not sure of what the author is trying to say. I suggest it be reworded to say something similar to ...wax or other substances to retain.... —
- No, resist can be a noun, and it is the correct word to use here. A minor tweak like "using wax or some other resist" or perhaps "using a resist such as wax" might make things clearer.
- There is a resist article, but it needs improvement; at the moment it only discusses semiconductor manufacture. Bo Lindbergh 07:30, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
Ground glass vs Frosted glass
I noticed that there is an article on ground glass that overlaps this one to some extent. I suppose that "ground glass" is a *specific* method of producing frosted glass. I suppose that some ground glass surfaces are indeed produced by mechanical grinding, either with a solid abrasive or with a solid tool and powder abrasive. Does the term "ground glass" include sand-blasted glass? In any case, some of the appliations listed in "ground glass" (such as ambient lighting) should be moved to this article.
