That's Hydrofluoric Acid etching, yes. Was that your question?

That was the answer i looking for.
I should have been more specific.
Since i have only done Glue Chipping,
do you have to sandblast the Glass before
applying the Acid ?

No. You have to mask off the area that you don't want etched with vinyl (or asphaltum)
