Glass Etching



Glass Etching is another hobby that I like doing, it's very easy to do, you can use a chemical that you can buy at the craft store or if you want to do it professionally, you can use a sand blaster. I've used both of them, I like using the chemical, because, it's much faster and easy, but the downfall is, the chemical is too expensive, while the sand blaster, is much affordable and you can reuse the sand too, but, it's too much work and very noisy, because you have to use an air compressor to hook up the sand blaster! The picture above was something that I etched for our Priest on his birthday. The good thing about this glass etching is, you can pretty much etch any kind of glass. I'm not saying that I am an expert, I am fairly new to this, I just started last year, you may want to do your own research about this and try it sometimes. It is really fun, I guarantee you!
