Yes, you can either use a chemical etching creme, or you can sandblast.

That's a great idea, I would never have thought of that.

Absolutely!

Be warned, though; once you start with mirrors, it can be very difficult to go back to regular glass! The lines are so crisp and obvious with mirrors, where with glass the eye allows a little room for blur/error.

Have fun!

The only problem I've had etching mirrors is that it gives a "halo" affect when you look at it from an angle - you see the etching and also the reflection of the etching.

Most of the time mine looked really great but sometimes it made the etching look a little fuzzy and I didn't like it.  I've never been able to tell why some looked good and others didn't.  Maybe it's just personal opinion.

Good Luck!
