    Re: Ground Glass protector

    I take 1/8 sheets of acrylic as wide as a film holder and a bit longer than two lengths of a film holder. Lay it over a 1 inch pipe or dowel or something and blow it with a paint stripper heat gun across the top. Gravity will bend the sides down and leave a rounded top just like Andrews above.
