Etching or engraving of glass requires no special skills such as glass cutting and soldering. With the purchase of a kit, you can begin right away to decorate any kind of glassware you wish. Mirrors, drinking glasses, windows, vases, tiles, and any clear glass objects lend themselves to acid etching. The stencils we sell can also be used to decorate with paint on fabric, wood, plastic, or ceramics. You may also want to design and create your own stencils using contact paper obtainable at any hardware store.

The Potential for engraving is unlimited, and once you have seen the #2723 Glass Engraving Course and Pattern Book you will see just why this medium has become so popular.
