EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Glass Etching

Glass etching -- the process of embellishing smooth glass surfaces with designs in a rough, frosty texture -- adds a touch of elegance and drama to ordinary glass canisters, tumblers, vases, and more, and the process is simple, thanks to the development of etching cream. Just be sure to wear rubber gloves, work in a well-ventilated area, and rinse off the cream in a stainless steel (not porcelain) sink.
