Prescription acid ?

Post by Andrey Kolmakov » Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:08 am

Hello again !
I want to ask you what kind recipe of acid use to etch glass . I found one recipe, but i do not like the result. Glass turns too grainy. I saw a lot of work on the Internet and they are very delicate etching.

i know this may be frowned upon by some professional guys and girls but i have been getting great results with a product available in most craft shops called "armour etch" glass etching cream it takes about 5 mins to etch the glass and can be used with signmakers vinyl as a mask
