Glass Etching Methods
I’ve spent the last week or so doing a bit of research on glass etching for this month’s project. I’ve found that there are basically two main methods for doing glass etching: corrosive cream or sand-blasting. Being a chick who loves big, fancy power tools.. the idea of doing some hardcore sand-blasting certainly sounds like a lot of fun! I will likely end up having to go the route of the corrosive cream instead, for cost purposes and lack of having a giant awesome sand-blaster. Darnit!
The below video demonstrates these two methods in a pretty basic and easy-to-understand way. The creation of stencils is not covered in this video though, so going to do a bit more looking around to find some good examples of different ways to create designs. Enjoy!
My mom does glass etching and has all the equipment…Its definitely expensive. I have a Cricut (the small one) you can use to make a stencil.
Oh how cool! I am still trying to figure out exactly how i’m going to do this one – will def let you know soon if i need the Cricut! Thanks so much Alicia! =D
