Variables Affecting Chipped Patterns
The glass chipping pattern is subject to many variables. The duplication and uniformity of each pattern is dependent on control of these variables.

There are many variables to be considered, The major ones are:

1. Glass - type and surface preparation
2. Room temperature during preliminary drying stage
3. Glue - type, concentration, and temperature at time of application
4. Weight of dry glue applied per area of glass
5. Dryness of glue film at end of preliminary drying stage
6. Temperature of drying room during chipping process
