Easy DIY Glass etching. Use several different methods to etch any design or logo onto glass. Whats great about our technique is you do not have to be an artist to achieve professional results.
Dremel diamond bit works great especially for the logos outline.
Using a dremel grinder with a glass etching diamond bit we trace the logo onto the glass. Note: design was sized and printed then taped to inside of glass.
After the etching creme is washed off additional detail can be added with the dremel diamond bit.
