glassware_etching

General Procedure:

  • Make design in VinylMaster Cut
    • You may want to cut a “perimeter” of lines around the sticker, but scissors will work too…
  • Cut design on vinyl cutter
    • Alt-P in VinylMaster Cut
  • attach sticker to glass, perform weeding as necessary (removing bits of sticker where etching will occur)
    • The hobby knives are the most dangerous tool in the shop, so be careful!
  • (optional: add some masking tape above/below sticker to prevent unwanted etching)
  • At the Sandblaster:
    • Practice blasts on one of
      1. A sacrificial glass piece
      2. A piece of rusty metal?
      3. A random piece of acrylic or something? (this may be the best as you can cut out a piece of the mask?)
    • Blast the glass! Should only take a few seconds of blasting to etch the glass.
