With a little imagination, you can easily create marvelous artwork.

Glass etching is a process that abrades or chemically eats areas of shapes or patterns into the glass which creates a rough frosted image. The frosted areas become noticeable with an elegant and unique white appearance. The design is elegant because the details that make up the image are nothing but the glass itself. I consider it to be a unique type of glass art because it can be done through multiple techniques.

Saving Time & Money

I became a huge fan of etching years ago and was astonished by the creativity and endless possibilities of what types of items you could create. My first idea was to start a business doing this line of work, so I sought after inexpensive equipment. I found a lot of sources and learned how to get into this industry at lower prices, so I turned that business idea around to create this site offering my information manual which is aimed to help others.
