OK, I've been into glass etching for years and years. Most of my best pieces though are either broke, or I've given away. These are a couple I had lying around. I'd like to get back into glass etching, it's lots of fun!

This one is on glass pane, used clear shelving paper and freehand with the exacto blade, then applied etching compound. Sorry about the flash reflection!



This second one is on a large square mirror. I used a painting as inspiration, but freehanded it as well. It was created the exact same way as the first one.



I'll post more if I can dig other ones out of storage, or when I start back up again!

Your mirrors are very nice.  I haven't done glass etching in years.  I am motivated now.

That is really cool.  Did you freehand the drawing or did you have a pattern?

Very nice. You have some skills with an xacto knife. I've done some etching using the same method with less wonderous results for the smaller more intricate designs.

Cool, those look awesome.  Good job creating those stencils by hand.  I on the other hand cheat.  I have a cutter cut mine.  If anyone needs help with cutting one, let me know.  I just started do this for free on my website.  I don't know how long I will do it though.

Anyway, looks great and I hope to see more.
