There's a great attention to detail in this glass octopus paperweight sculpture; The Octopus body and tentacle design is made using Red glass accented with "fumed" pure gold on the surface giving the texture on the head and parts of the body a metallic sheen.
This one is perched upon a beige glass rock shape that is also "fumed" with gold that highlights the surface texture making it metallic and shiny.
Fuming is a technique using the heat from the torch to vaporize gold or .925 silver. The vapor adheres to the glass surface giving it a metallic gloss.
