Harold that is a good question. I always thought that glass etching was with Flouric acid. But I know very little about that.
Hydroflouric acid is nasty stuff that it is best to stay away from COMPLETELY!. If you get it on your skin, any skin, it will eat right through to the bone marrow.Harold that is a good question. I always thought that glass etching was with Flouric acid. But I know very little about that.
Add a vinyl plotter to your arsenal for a mask. Im sure thereMaybe I am going the wrong direction with CNC etching. I have had a local trophy shop etch logos into glass.
Recently the business changed hands and this has become too costly. Maybe I should be asking what is the
best way to make a mask.
Nice work.I've done a lot of glass etching with this stuff,
here is a shelf I made that I etched the mirror....easy peasy brush on wait 10 minutes wash off.....
I make glue chipped glass by using rabbit hide glue on the glass....Old time recipe...I'm sorry for posting that drag knife thing.
I am bent on glue-chipped glass and thats what I always think of.
Etching is nice but I find that glue-chipped glass is more appealing.
Once my machine gets here i'm going to try it out.
yes that is a good idea I happen to have a large one for other reasons but comes in handy for this purpose.Add a vinyl plotter to your arsenal for a mask. Im sure there
are smaller units out there you could pick up, load in the
vinyl mask, cut it, weed it out and start etching/blasting etc.
Xacto blades can do so much by hand and could get discouraging.
Vinyl plotters can only go so small before losing detail and alot of
stuff is small. Especially for trophies.
Are there other methods for super small graphics? Probably Laser?
Glastar has a neat mini sandblast system
that I've been interested in for years.
