A while back, I asked my newsletter subscribers to submit some questions that they were interested in and I would try to make some tutorials. A subscriber named David asked me to do a tutorial on how to autograph glass by etching. Basically he wanted to add his signature to his stained glass projects after they were complete. So I created the following video below.
The photo below shows a close up of what my engraved autograph looks like on the scrap piece of glass. The top one is done by rotary engraving. The bottom was complete by sandblasting over the cut melted areas developed from the heated stencil cutting tool which is sold by Dremel here: http://amzn.to/18xW9wu
Remember, some other methods are:
- Use the photoresist method by signing the transparent sheet with a black marker and exposing it.
- Sandblast with a small tip up close to the glass, using a low air pressure.
- Manually cutting out your signature after writing it with a marker on the vinyl. There are some tools that would make this easy.
- Scanning signature into computer, producing a vector, and using a stencil cutter.
