Does anyone know if Armour Etch works on Plexiglass? I don't want to go buy all the supplies if it doesn't.

Thanks! Smiley

Plexiglass is not really glass at all but a type of plastic.  Armor Etch comes in a plastic bottle, so I think it's safe to assume that it doesn't affect plastic.

Do you have a power sander?  You can get a really nice frosted/etched effect from sanding plexi.  Hand sanding might work too, but a power sander will give you a more even, professional look.

Hope that helps!

And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.
