Special Effects 101: Breakable Glass

Welcome to our mini series on movie and special events and how they're done. Every week, we'll go behind the scenes and attempt to answer the question: How do they DO that? 

First up this week? Breakable glass!

Breakable glass, also known as sugar glass, is a popular prop used in stunt sequences.  Sugar glass breaks easier than real glass and is less harmful.

In addition to providing events with breakable glass, Pyritz Pyrotechnics Group, LLC. specializes in a wide-range of special effects, including fog, explosives and wedding fireworks.
