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.

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

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!
