REAL glas: YOU need to mold it over a metal shape. So get your welder out and start working on the metal. Then get a torch. Oh and before I forget it..get good gloves!! and then use good tools to touch the glass. then heat up the glass. Unlike the plexi, dont heat up the entire piece o glass but only small parts and press the glass onto the metal shape.
one more thing: dont try it with real glass unless you've seen someone do it before.

you can get a heatgun in every hardware store...prices vary greatly, depending on the features of the guns. some have exact temperature control. a cheap one will do though.
