Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know how to etch on glass? It has to be a deep etch. What chemicals are used? Can someone please point me in the right direction.

You help would be appreciated.

Thanks J

Hydroflouric acid , very nasty. Rather blast it , you can go very deep.

Available at your local stained glass supply. I have used it, and it will not etch as deep as a laser, I agree with Rodne, go with sandblasting.
