Acid etching is used to decorate many different types of glass objects, whether it be for a gift or to decorate your own home. Etching cream or liquid is applied to glass in a pattern, using a brush freehand, or contact paper or stencils. The acid in the cream reacts with the surface of the glass, leaving a frosted effect when it is washed off.
