Glass etching is defined as a set of creative methods used to carve designs into a smooth piece of glass. The effects are similar to that of airbrushing – albeit permanently crafted into the decorative glass application of your choice. Design complexity can range with simple patterns throughout to intricately designed portraits of unconventional objects. Etched glass doors, windows and panels are the most conventional of glass etched surfaces.
The Sandblasting Technique
The most common glass etching method is sandblasting – the process of treating the surface of the glass to achieve a translucent result in the sandblasted area. The effect allows for some transparency and light to pass through, with just the semblance of silhouettes and muddled colours seen on the other side. Used in a variety of applications – simple sandblasted glass treatments are used predominantly in interior design applications. With anything from dividers, partitions, furniture, interior screens, shower walls and many more available to sandblasting techniques.
Glass Etching in Interior Design
Another glass etching technique is going into the depth of the glass to create edges that contribute to the overall design of the surface. When glass etching goes deeper than the glass’s surface level, the effect looks as if the design is encased inside the glass – making for an aesthetically intriguing and timeless contribution to your home.
Glass etching design can also elevate the interiors of commercial spaces. Due to the customizability of etched glass design, the possibilities are virtually endless. You can etch your business logo or name into glass as a decorative yet modern addition to your office space. You can also use glass etching services to create unique etched glass doors or panels in your working spaces or meeting rooms.
