today i came across an artist who created all kinds of anatomical shapes with (traditional) glass
and then turns them into amazing looking neon/plasma lights.

Now this brought me to the idea and question,
is the printed glass strong/dense enough to be used in air tight sealed neon art?
I have currently no experience with neontubes or anything it's just that it got me curious about the possibilities.
Like would it be possible to create a printed (glass) shape and contact a neon artist to make it work (or just inspire the neon artist to do such things)
