The use of hydrofluoric acid or sand blasting to create a matte finish or a specific design on glass.
Glass treated by an acid bath, producing a satiny, diffused surface or design.
glass decorated with hydrofluoric acid. The glass is first masked with an acid-resistant substance and decorations are inscribed through the mask with a point; and the exposed glass is etched by the acid.
Glass in which an image is made by masking and then sandblasting surfaces. All sorts of patterns, designs and lettering can be frosted on glass, making it ideal for dividers, walls and signage.
Method of masking designs on glass with a resistant media like wax, paper, or asphaltum and then exposing it to hydrofluoric acid fumes to etch designs Etching: See chemical etching.
glass that has had a pattern cut into its surface, usually by sand blasting.
Glass decorated or otherwise marked by the use of abrasives. In industry, this is achieved by a process of sandblasting over a rubberised template. In home crafts, glass etching can be done using special etching cream and templates.
glass that has had a pattern cut into its surface, usually by an acid treatment.
Delicate designs on crystal created by coating the parts not to be etched with wax and dipping the piece in an acid bath.
Glass used for doorlites on which a decorative pattern is engraved by means of chemical action or mechanical sand-blasting.
Glass (on a light bulb) treated with acid for the purpose of diffusion. (See diffusion).
Glass decorated, carved or otherwise marked by sandblasting or the use of hydrofluoric acid. The glass is first covered with an acid-resistant wax or gum, the design is drawn through the resist with a point, and the exposed glass is etched.
