I have made several items using Rubber stamps to Etch Glass.  Check my website for details.  Look at the Art Gallery.  Earlier in this Thread I posted instructions on how to Etch Glass with rubber stamps.  It's very simple.

Those are so amazing. My friends and family are definitely getting etched glassware this christmas.

Great job.

Thanks for the tutorial.  I made my own glasses for my new house.

Would this work the same?
Krylon Frosted Glass Finish
I've never tried it, but it seems like it would be easier.

Ooh that krylon spray looks cool.  I wonder how durable it is, though?  Like, is it dishwasher safe?

Krylon Frosted Glass Finish

It may be easier, but it's definitely not the same, that's just a surface paint.  I had a friend who did the glass windows next to her front door with that.  After a few weeks, the paint had scratched off from her dog jumping up on the windows, leaving little clear doggy nail marks in the paint, so I doubt that it is dishwasher safe, and may not be safe for surfaces touched by food. (I'd read the can before trying it on glass used with food.)

Using acid etching cream you are actually removing little particles from the surface of the glass, so it is permanent, and once you wash the acid off, there is nothing left on the glass.  It's like sanding the surface with realllllllyyy fine sand paper.

So if you want to change a window temporarily, then the paint is the way to go, otherwise I'd use the acid etching cream.

SO I saw this post when I first ventured out of the sewing boards. I loved it and had to try it, so I went to everyone of my local craft stores and no one carried armor etch any more...seriously 3 different stores... I was so sad about it, but had to have it. So I went to Joann.com and bought it (even though my local store didn't have it they had it online). And now I am waiting for it.

But has anyone else had this problem with not being able to find it anywhere? Whats the deal? I asked as well, they weren't just out of it, they stopped carrying it....odd...

Most shops stop carying it when it becomes something used in vandalizing property (ie: frosted tagged windows). Im not sure if that could be the reason as to why yours had stopped carying it, but I have heard of this. Its also pretty dangerous stuff, they may feel like people that buy it may be young and/or not mature enough to handle it. Post up your pictures when you make something! Its really fun stuff.

Your best bet for finding it is stained glass supplies stores.  I think it's just not popular enough for most craft stores to carry it.

I love them. It's a great way to save money, you cold get some cheap glass at the dollar store and design something twice the price at Pier 1.
